This mini course is a slimmed-down version of a more extensive course. The lectures are the same, which will be evident in the Lecture 1 video. The assignments and solutions do not fully overlap, however.
This mini course gives you an idea of the full course, and enables you to share what you’ve learned with others.
Bioethics is a challenging and fascinating combination of policy, law, ethics, science & technology, politics, philosophy and even more, such as economy.
Literally, bioethics is the ethics of life. Every time you open a newspaper or go to a news site, there will be at least one article that involves bioethics, one way or another.

My apologies for those who are hearing-impaired or vision-impaired.
I assume that you are not visually or hearing-impaired. The course lectures are a combination of audio and visual, but the match is not 100%. I am not trained in making courses for people with visual or hearing impairments and that will likely be most evident in the assignments.
