Course summary

Overview

Designed for healthcare professionals and students with an interest in Bioethics, this MSc Programme will provide you with the opportunity to explore and understand ethical problems of medicine in a global context.

With an increasingly mobile population across the world, healthcare professionals, more than ever, need to manage a broader range of health care problems including pandemics, which we’ve all seen with the emergence and spread of COVID-19.

This programme has been designed to address these challenges and will provide you with a greater understanding of the complexities of socio-cultural factors across different countries, enabling you to develop your skills in complex decision making and ethical reasoning. Options exist to complete modules in Public Health and Policy and to complete a work-based placement.

Why Global Healthcare Ethics?

As the importance of understanding and undertaking biomedical research on a global scale increases, healthcare professionals, simultaneously, need to develop modern and flexible research skills and professional behaviours in the field of clinical ethics. Major advances in medical and communication technology have increased patients’ expectations and options too, meaning future clinicians need to be equipped with a wide range of intellectual and practical skills to deal with limited healthcare resources nationally and internationally.

Career prospects

On completion of the programme, you should have a strong foundation in global medical ethics, including an understanding of the core concepts and theories of applied medical ethics and the socio-cultural factors which may affect these. This master’s degree offers the opportunity to work in ethics and policy-related jobs, nationally and internationally. For example: ethics committees of national and international health institutions and organisations, the WHO, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, the Department of Health, the GMC, the BMA Ethics Department, medical research centres, or teaching ethics in medical schools.
