The Bioethics Initiative internship is an introduction to the field of bioethics, with a primary focus on its application in the clinical setting. In a bioethics class, topics will be addressed through lectures and presentations, videos and handouts. Class discussions will be based on the readings, hypothetical and real clinical cases, and student responses. Research, the other aim of the internship, is conducted under guidance of a mentor.
The classroom and clinical observation portion of the internship track requires 72 hours (15% of the total internship time): 48 clinical hours, plus 20 hours of class, and about four other education opportunities. Read More
