Education: Teaching and learning ethics & law
Good teaching is informed by sound research. All of our lecturers are involved in research, and most of our researchers and PhD students teach. We teach students in medicine, nursing, technology and natural science.
Medicine, nursing, engineering and other professions involves responsibility. That responsibility is professional, but it also has ethical and legal perspectives. We want to help students develop their ability to understand how ethical and legal issues arise in practice. We also give students the opportunity to practice their critical skills: analyzing ethical and legal problems, finding the relation between them and argue for different views.
Our aim is to help students and staff develop the competence they need to identify the values that are at stake when they face ethical dilemmas in their future professions. We teach future nurses, doctors, biologists and engineers at Uppsala University, offer several separate courses as well as obligatory courses for PhD students and research ethics training for new researchers and teachers in the disciplinary domain of medicine and pharmacy.
We offer advanced level courses in neuroethics, public health ethics, and ethics in research, writing and communication that are open for anyone who meets the criteria.
Courses for PhD students

Research ethics training for staff
All sciences and academic disciplines give rise to complex ethical issues. We offer mandatory research ethics training for new teachers and researchers in the disciplinary domain of medicine and pharmacy.
