Program Description:

The Bioethics Programmes, part of the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine in the School of Public Health at the University of Montreal, offer four types of training that allow students to discuss and reflect on issues that affect health policy, clinical ethics and research ethics. All four focus on the process of decision making, including the meaning, issues, methodologies, practices and problems of decision making in the health sector. These programmes are for both professionals and graduate students who want to broaden their knowledge and expertise in bioethics.

The Bioethics Programmes offer training to suit your needs and your ambitions. Whether in the Microprogramme, the Graduate Diploma, the research or professional Masters, or the PhD, the aim is to:

-facilitate ethical decision making;
-develop skills in bioethics in relation to various fields of practice;
-train bioethics consultants in either clinical practice, research or health policy;
-train researchers in the field of bioethics.
