Research Ethics for Medicine and Pharmacy

This course deals with the norms of science, ethical norms in theory and practice, fraud in scientific research, publication ethics, data management and sharing, and the ethics application to the ethics review authority.

The course is called 'Research Ethics and Philosophy of Science' and will give you 3 credits and will inform you about different philosophical presuppositions in scientific research, ethical guidelines for research, the theoretical basis of these guidelines, legal regulations of research, and how to fill out an application form. Students should also learn how to identify and analyse ethical problems raised by their research.


This is a compulsory course (3 credits) for PhD students in Medicine and Pharmacy that can be chosen instead of the integrated course (9 credits) Introduction to Scientific Research. It consists of one full week of classes and some additional on-line modules to be completed before and after the course week.
