The UNESCO Chair collaborated in the launch of a new online Bioethics Diploma through the Universidad Anahuac Mexico, which began on January 16, 2017. The program will be open to the next cycle of students on July 10, 2017. A summary of the course can be read here.
The program trains those students interested in the defense of life, the dignity of the person, human duties and values, the preservation of health, or the individual and social well-being. Students should also possess a disposition for an interdisciplinary investigation that integrates philosophical, juridical, and medical approaches to investigate the chief challenges facing contemporary society. Moreover, they should possess the capacity to recognize and react to the impact scientific and technological advances have upon society.
Graduates of the diploma will be empowered for a wide range of professional services. They will be prepared to form interdisciplinary teams to reach better decision in their professional field. Graduates will also be equipped to support, assist, and give counsel to both hospital bioethics committees as well as other ethical committees of investigation. They will thus be able to analyze and propose concrete solutions to ethical dilemmas using the method of personalist Bioethics learned in their online course work.
Prospective students have until May 31, 2017 to submit all requested documents. For more information, please visit the Bioethics Faculty’s website here.
