Medical Humanities II - Human Rights

The goal of this module is to introduce you to different official documents and conventions which define the ethical and professional obligations of each physician in relation to the patient, as well as the history of how medical ethics developed and came to be as we regard it today. We will also discuss different aspects of human rights and human rights violations, especially in the context of medicine.

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.

More information about our department, our faculty members, and the overall goal of our medical humanities curriculum can be found at our 
Department's Website.
