Empirical Bioethics - two day training course

Courses suspended for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic

"A really useful course - I don't think I could have obtained the same knowledge or understanding even from hours of reading the literature!"

"An incredibly useful course that not only provides the expertise and understanding needed for those using empirical bioethics approaches to ethical enquiry, but also 'space' to allow the thinking, collaborating and exploring that is vital to those practicing in this field"

"This was an excellent 2 days to take at the beginning of my fellowship.  I leave with a much clearer sense of the history of the EB field, the development of methodologies, and feel more confident about deciding on the most appropriate methods for my project.  I am leaving full of enthusiasm and ready to go"

"Attending this course has been an absolutely brilliant opportunity to learn from great researchers and peers"
