MA in Bioethics and Medical Law: St Mary's University

At a time when both individuals and institutions in healthcare are increasingly being called to account for their decisions and procedures, reflection on the ethical principles that underlie medical and allied practice is an important part of continuing professional development for healthcare professionals.

Every day, it seems some new dilemma in medical ethics appears in the news; whether to do with stem cell research, assisted suicide, resource allocation, nanotechnologies, human cloning or health and climate change. There is an obvious need for people, especially healthcare professionals and teachers, to be informed about these issues.
To address this need St Mary’s University has a well-established Postgraduate Programme in Bioethics which addresses ethical aspects of medicine, life sciences and associated technologies as they apply to human beings, taking into account their social, legal, environmental and spiritual dimensions.
