Course description:
As an epidemiologist you have to be able to reflect on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of your knowledge and judgements. Both in the design and conduct of research, as well as in the discussion, interpretation, and communication of research results, ethical considerations always play a role. The course aims to introduce you to theory, logical reasoning, and case studies, in the ethics of experimentation on human subjects, international research, and research on children and other vulnerable populations.
Also the role of epidemiological research within society is discussed. In particular you will be asked to formulate your personal view and ambitions within the field.
