Medical Humanities IV - Clinical Ethics I

The goal of this module is to learn about ethical issues in research and about various ethical issues that arise in clinical practice - in psychiatry, in public health emergencies, when patients refuse interventions or when interventions are considered futile. We will also focus on how to determine the decision-making capacity of a patient and what some possible conflicts of interest within medicine are. You will learn to apply the knowledge that you learned so far to clinically oriented cases and dilemmas.

All our class materials, including the schedule, student groups, tasks and grades will be provided on the Merlin e-learning platform (
you can access it here: Moodle - INTRANET). To log in, you will need to use the institutional e-mail that you received when you enrolled. 

Your exam for this course will be to write an essay. The topic will be determined right before the course begins. Likewise, attendance is mandatory and is also part of your grade. You can find more information about this on Merlin - it will be added several days before the course begins.
