At Bioethics Boot Camp, students will:

  • Attend lectures on the interdisciplinary field of bioethics
  • Participate in seminars on bioethics issues
  • Attend hospital rounds with clinicians
  • Get practical advice about publishing bioethics papers and pursuing a career in bioethics
  • Work on a publishable bioethics paper with the help of a faculty mentor

To apply, please send a one-page statement of interest, one letter of recommendation, a short writing sample (<10 pages), and a CV to Caitlin O’Neill, Administrative Coordinator, at [email protected].
