Course content:

The programme on the expertise and tradition of Edinburgh to deliver an internationally focussed, interdisciplinary programme that combines flexible learning with the most-up-to-date teaching on all of the important issues affecting medicine, law and ethics today. New health issues are emerging and patient rights are increasingly taking centre stage; new and complex medico-legal dilemmas arise in clinical practice, in the realities of human health, and in the relationships between patients and healthcare professionals. You will have opportunities to examine healthcare policy and the regulation of medicine in different parts of the world. You will also evaluate responses to technology and debate possible futures for medical law. Applications are welcomed from healthcare professionals, including doctors and nurses and from all those with an interest in this area.
