Bioethics Education Tools Now Available

The Advanced Certificate Program in Research Ethics for Central and Eastern Europe, a collaboration of Union Graduate College of Mount Sinai School of Medicine (USA) and Vilnius University (Lithuania), which is supported by the Fogarty International Center, has released its first downloadable graduate-level course in international bioethics.

This online course provides students with an overview of the historical and theoretical foundations of bioethics. The materials are provided in Moodle format, an open-source (free) course management system. Therefore, anyone interested in providing bioethics education is welcome to review, adapt, use, and disseminate the materials.

The Advanced Certificate Program plans to release two additional online courses for public use, International Research Ethics 1 and 2. In addition, translated versions—Croatian, Georgian, Lithuanian, Romanian, Russian, and Serbian—of selected course materials will be available for download soon. To download the international bioethics course or to read the overview and sample syllabus, visit the Advanced Certificate Program website.
