This is an independent study course in the sense that there are no in class lectures.
The overarching goal of this Practicum course is to provide a context for the integration of theory and practice. In other words, the practicum will provide the occasion for you to observe how theory informs practice. The Practicum has three sub-goals:
- To provide students with in vivo practical experience in Bioethics related work settings. The student may be interested in gaining practical experience in areas such as: clinical ethics consultation, organizational ethics, ethics education, ethics policy development or ethics research.
- To provide students with mentorship throughout the practicum placement. The course is designed to give the student an opportunity to work in the area of bioethics under the supervision of a person with advanced training in bioethics.
- The third goal is to provide a setting for students to develop and implement a Capstone project. See below under the Practical Bioethics Course for more information about the Capstone project.
