The Sherwin B. Nuland Summer Institute in Bioethics

June 1 – July 22, 2017 • New Haven, CT
The Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics at Yale University hosts an intensive Summer Institute in Bioethics for U.S. and international participants.

The “Foundations” component runs from June 1st – 9th and consists of an introduction to ethical theory along with a review of bioethical principles, theories, terms, and history, and concludes with a site visit to The Hastings Center in NY.
The remainder of the program covers ethical issues pertaining to a broad range of topics including medicine, law, religion, public health, disability ethics, animal ethics, and the environment.

Lectures in the morning are followed by small-group mini-courses in the afternoons.

Participants choose from over 20 mini-courses.

Participants include graduate students and professionals along with a few select undergraduates. Participants receive mentoring from experts in the field and have ample opportunity to tailor the program to meet their career & research goals.

A small percentage of top participants will be invited to participate in “Fast Track” which provides weekly 1:1 tutoring to help participants complete a paper – to be submitted to a journal by the end of the program.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Just a few slots remain!

Tuition: $1,800 (undergraduates); $2,200 (graduate students); $3,200 (professionals)

Rates for this 2-month program are comparable to 1-week summer programs at similar institutions.

Course credit may be available, and housing is available within walking distance for an additional cost.
