Program Goal: Our flexible 2-year, in-residence program provides students with the foundational knowledge, skills, and experience to enrich their careers and broaden their competency in bioethics. The program offers training in research and clinical aspects of bioethics as well as empirical and normative methods of analysis. Students have the opportunity to study with diverse and well-respected faculty from the University of Washington, the Treuman Katz Pediatric Bioethics Center, and the Seattle Veteran’s Health Administration. The program helps prepare students to teach, publish, and conduct research that incorporates bioethical analysis.
Opportunities for in-depth study on a topic of interest are available through elective courses, mentored research, and practicum experiences.
Candidates should possess strong writing, critical thinking and verbal communication skills. GRE scores are not required.
Students are encouraged to take additional electives based on interest and area of specialty, with guidance from their faculty mentor(s).
Additional requirements: 1) Attend 3 Bioethics Grand Rounds lectures; 2) lead 2 BRI discussion groups
