MA/MD Joint Degree - Bioethics and Medicine
The School of Medicine and department of Philosophy have been working together to develop and offer classes in the first Joint MD and MA degree. Classes for the degree will begin being offered in the fall of 2004. The goal of the MD/MA joint degree program is to train medical professionals in the basic ethical principles underlying medical practice and to educate them about bioethical issues that they are likely to confront. The program was specifically developed to take advantage of the presence of the IU School of Medicine and to enhance the ethics training it offers its students, as well as to allow those training for the medical profession to offer their practical insight to other students in the MA program.
