Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Restriction: Must be in a major in UGST-HCOL-Integrated Life Sciences Program.
This course looks at ethical issues related to scientific research and integrity as well as issue surrounding medical ethics such as use of limited resources, euthanasia, and physician-assisted suicide. This is a topics class, so we won't be going into detail of philosophical arguments, but we may bring them up as relevant. Moreover, especially as applied to medical ethics, there may be no "right" answer. Instead, we would like you to be able to think critically about the issue, and make a moral argument (as opposed to a logistical argument).
