Orientation

Both the Office of Graduate Studies and the Department of Bioethics will hold student orientations.

Graduate Studies orientation: August 22nd and 23rd.

Department of Bioethics orientation: August 24th.

You are required to attend these orientations. The goals of our orientation are to:

  1. introduce students to the Department of Bioethics;
  2. discuss goals of the Master’s program;
  3. introduce faculty and other students;
  4. discuss program logistics.

Registration

Instructions on enrolling in classes

A list of core and selected elective courses and descriptions is enclosed. Most students register after orientation. Don’t worry about being closed out of courses; it’s very rare for graduate students to have this problem. If you want to register before orientation, please contact your adviser to schedule a time to visit and plan your program of study.

Academic Advisor

You must meet with your advisor prior to registering. You will be matched with a faculty member who will help you plan your program of study.

Foundations in Bioethics I: BETH 401 (core course)

Foundations in Bioethics is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. The class will be located in Room E401 in the School of Medicine.

Clinical Ethics Rotation: BETH 405 (core course)

Students who intend to complete the clinical ethics rotation during the 2017-2018 academic year should register for 1.5 credit hours in both the Fall and Spring semesters. The program includes two 10-week rotations.

There will be an in-depth Clinical Ethics Rotation Orientation held immediately after the Department of Bioethics Orientation. If you have any questions about the rotation, e-mail Professor Mark Aulisio at mpa5@case.edu.
