What is bioethics?

Bioethics is concerned with finding practical answers to difficult value-based questions faced by patients and families, health professionals, health researchers, health administrators and health policymakers. The aim of the field of bioethics is to improve health. Interdisciplinary in nature, bioethics draws from many areas across the humanities, and health and social sciences. The University of Toronto’s MHSc in Bioethics program reflects this interdisciplinarity, making it an exemplary model of interprofessional education.
