Medical Law and Ethics

Medical law and ethics is a fascinating field of study as advances in research and new technologies shift the boundaries of medicine; new health issues are continually emerging and patient rights are increasingly taking centre stage; complex medico-legal dilemmas are arising in healthcare practice and in the relationships between patients and healthcare professionals; students find that many of the issues covered on this course are highly topical. Students explore the moral problems faced by medical and healthcare professionals, learn about issues that may raise legal liability in these areas, and reflect upon the legal, social and ethical context in which healthcare law is situated. We think students benefit from working with students from medical, healthcare and legal backgrounds who bring different experiences and viewpoints to the subject. Delivered in short, intensive blocks of teaching, this course is accessible to busy medical and legal professionals. It is taught jointly by staff from by Anglia law school and our faculty of medical science, reflecting its inter-professional ethos.
