Bioethics Training

Applications for the Bioethics Training Track are now closed,
please watch this space for further training opportunities. 

The Bioethics training track is a 14-part video series, produced by Prof John Wyatt. In it you will discover the principles of medical ethics from a Christian worldview. The course will unpack the foundations that should underpin the thinking of every Christian healthcare professional.

It covers such topics as:

  • Machine thinking, technology, consumerism, ethical pluralism
  • Foundations of Christian Bioethics -
    Creation, Fall, Redemption and Future hope
  • Beginning of life, reproductive technology and Abortion
  • Euthanasia, dying well and palliative care
  • Low resources
  • Corruption in health care
  • Mental health
  • Region specific topics that are identified

We plan to run three regional training tracks with a local facilitator and Prof John Wyatt who will be available for support and to provide input.

The training track will involve weekly interactive Zoom sessions. Prior to each session trainees will need to watch that week's training video.

There will be a short written assignment between the weekly sessions. Trainees will need to set aside at least two hours a week for this track (1 hour virtual meeting, 30 minutes watching training video, 30 minutes writing assignment.)
