Course description

The MSc Healthcare Ethics and Law is designed to complement your degree by enabling you to study in depth the moral and legal issues that you possibly already face as a medical student, and will certainly be a factor of your future career.

This course emphasises the application of bioethical and legal theory to real world scenarios, allowing you to gain expert knowledge and the skills needed to apply it in a diverse range of contexts.

You will, through carefully-designed lectures, discussions, and papers from visiting speakers, be introduced to the full range of ethico-legal controversies as they apply to medicine, and be encouraged to use the conceptual tools you will acquire to formulate solutions to those controversies and contribute to ongoing debates.

Open days

The School of Law will be represented at the annual Law Fair at Manchester Central on 15 November 2016 from 12.30 to 4pm, if you wish to speak to us in person on an informal basis.

The Postgraduate Taught Open Day will take place on 23 November 2016 on campus. For further details please visit our open days and visits page.
