Overview

The Medical Ethics and Law  programme at Keele University aims to improve your ability to examine health care contexts, identify and consider the moral issues that healthcare professionals may face, then weigh up and, if need be, effectively present and communicate alternative scenarios.

Reflecting on current law and ethical principles taught, you’ll consider different perspectives and arguments relating to a variety of controversial treatment decisions and circumstances, such as abortion, assisted reproduction, assisted suicide, or where there are issues of consent based on mental impairment or age.

Career:

This exciting, interdisciplinary course allows you to pursue your ethical and legal interests – for personal or professional reasons – exploring the ethical dilemmas facing healthcare professionals and administrators on a daily basis and delving beyond the ‘soundbite’ rhetoric of media headlines.

In addition to the specialist knowledge you’ll gain, you’ll develop a range of essential transferable skills in analysis, critical thinking, problem-solving and communications. This can broaden your career options in a wide variety of roles in medical, legal and ethical fields, ranging from clinical or medical practice to policy-making, teaching or research.
