Health care professionals and others professionally interested in medical ethics find themselves increasingly confronted with moral questions and dilemmas.
Health care professionals and others professionally interested in medical ethics find themselves increasingly confronted with moral questions and dilemmas. Such complex issues challenge the people who have to deal with them every day. They require careful study and well-considered judgement, as well as rigorous questioning and thorough debate. With several European universities and institutes the master of bioethics offers a common, post-academic, complementary education in health care ethics with an effective and condensed learning trajectory.
The Master of Bioethics has been selected as an Erasmus Mundus master course. The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. It also provides EU-funded scholarships for third country nationals participating in these Masters Courses.
