About

The Healthcare Ethics and Law (Intercalated) course from The University of Manchester compliments your medical degree, giving you the opportunity to study the in-depth moral and legal issues that you will face as a medic or researcher.

Overview

While identifying the ethical and legally problematic aspects of practice, you will learn to formulate ethically acceptable solutions in challenging circumstances.On completion of the course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the principles of medical ethics and law, and will have developed a full conceptual toolkit that has been informed by both disciplines.

Aims

By the end of this Healthcare Ethics and Law (Intercalated) course from The University of Manchester compliments your medical degree, giving you the opportunity to study the in-depth moral and legal issues that you will face as a medic or researcher, you will be able to:
  • Apply the concepts you have learned to real-world situations, both familiar and unforeseen.
  • Identify the ethically and legally problematic aspects of practice; and be able to suggest ways to minimise, solve, or avoid those problems.
  • You will also, through the dissertation element of the course, have refined the ability to make and sustain a prolonged and sophisticated argument on a topic of interest.

Career opportunities

The Healthcare Ethics and Law course better equips you to solve ethico-legal dilemmas that you will meet on the ward or, more importantly, perhaps - simply to spot them.

Increasingly, medical researchers have to demonstrate compliance with certain ethical demands, and so an intercalated degree in ethics and law will be useful when it comes to planning research.

Finally, studying with us will reflect interests and concerns that most people have anyway, whether they know it or not. On completion of the course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of medical ethics and medical law and a full conceptual toolkit that can be applied to both disciplines.
