Medical Ethics and Law: Keele


This course provides an opportunity to study the ethical and legal issues that arise in health care and related fields. The course explores the moral problems that those working in these fields face in the course of their work, provides the background for recognising issues that may raise legal liability in these contexts, and reflects the legal and social context in which health care practice is situated

Teaching is delivered in short intense blocks, enabling those in full-time employment to do the course part-time and fit it around the demands of their work wherever they are based. It is taught by staff from the School of Law and Centre for Professional Ethics, all of whom have research interests in health care law and ethics, and who between them have written a broad range of books and articles in this area. From time to time, expert speakers from outside Keele may also be invited to speak on the course. In addition to outside speakers directly connected to the course, Keele hosts a wide range of seminars, workshops, lectures and visiting fellowships.

Many of these activities are available free of charge to Keele students.

The Medical Ethics and Law teaching team have many years experience of teaching postgraduate applied ethics courses. We are aware of the special problems and challenges which may face mature students and those combining study with full-time work, and therefore we do our utmost to offer a supportive and stimulating environment for learning.
