Distinction in Bioethics students will distinguish themselves by assuming a significant level of responsibility in planning, implementing, and completing a project in Bioethics that is rigorous and scholarly. We conceptualize “bioethics” to be an inclusive term, so that students with varied interests (clinical ethics, public health ethics, global health ethics, research ethics, health issues in public policy, etc.) will be able to engage a supportive community of scholars and mentors.
Students who are accepted into this program and who fulfill all requirements as certified by the Distinction in Bioethics committee will receive diplomas at Commencement stating that they have graduated with “Distinction in Bioethics”. Students who complete the program before August 1st of their graduation year will also have their achievement recognized in their Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) letter. Learn More
