Steve Biko Centre’s Short Courses In Ethics and Health Law

The Steve Biko Centre for Bioethics, School of Clinical Medicine, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg is offering short Certificate Courses in Bioethics and Health Law early in 2013.

These courses aim to fill a gap in the bioethics education market by providing practical, applied, accessible training in this field that is more focussed and in-depth than the average talk or seminar, but less onerous and demanding than a degree course.

Foundations of Bioethics (28 Jan – 1 Feb 2013)

Foundations of Health Law (4 – 8 February 2013)

Research Ethics: Conducting Research Ethically (11 – 15 February 2013)

Advanced Health Ethics (18 – 22 February 2013)

For the Research Ethics course, members of Research Ethics Committees and researchers in the health field are especially welcome to apply.

Candidates who successfully complete the evaluation component of the course will be awarded with a University of the Witwatersrand Certificate of Competence.

Venue: Wits Faculty of Health Sciences, 7 York Road, Parktown

Fees: R3 500 per course
