Professional Focus : Biomedical Ethics and Bioethics [30.0]

ethi2m  2019-2020  Louvain-la-Neuve

The professional focus in biomedical and bioethical ethics is designed to train students to develop a critical analysis of situations and problems associated with current medial practice, both in developed and developing countries. Such analysis will not only take account of the objective facts of the situation and the system of regulation which relates to decisions, but also ideological, cultural and historical data. This analysis is designed to help students acquire - understanding of the theories, concepts and methods in current biomedical ethics, - the ability to make use of these models and methods to describe situations and suggest a well-balanced set of solutions to the problems faced, - personal familiarity of the environments where such questions arise (laboratories, care institutions, etc.).
