The Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law (of KU Leuven) is organising an intensive course on Ethics of Reproductive Technologies. The objective of this course is to focus at some of the most challenging ethical issues in reproductive medicine, as well on the level of fundamental notions as applied clinical questions. This course works from an interdisciplinary perspective: clinical, ethical and philosophical. The intensive course Ethics of Reproductive Technologies is part of the Erasmus Mundus Master of Bioethics programme.
During the course, experts will give presentations on various topics in the domain of reproductive medicine. There will be time for intensive discussions. The language of instruction will be English. The course is of interest to participants from diverse professional backgrounds, such as medicine, fertility, genetic counseling, ethics, law, philosophy and theology, health care administration, bioethics committees and PhD students undertaking courses of study in these areas.
