For those interested in further study in Clinical Ethics and Health Law, the University of Sydney offers the following:
Sydney Bioethics Program
The Bioethics Program at the University of Sydney is a joint initiative between the Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine (VELIM) in the Faculty of Medicine, and the Unit for the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) in the Faculty of Science. It is designed to address the growing interest in the life sciences and biomedical technologies among theorists and researchers in the humanities and social sciences, as well as the increasingly urgent need for postgraduate ethics education among researchers and practitioners in health-related fields and disciplines such as medicine, nursing, public health, health law, and public policy.
Master of Health Law at Sydney Law School
The Master of Health Law is a flexible, specialist postgraduate qualification in health law providing wide-ranging interdisciplinary coverage of contemporary legal and social issues in health care. The Masters is offered by the Centre for Health Governance, Law and Ethics at the Sydney Law School. The degree will be of particular interest to lawyers with a health/professional liability practice, hospital and other health organization administrators, doctors, nurses and other eligible health professionals. An exciting feature of the MHL program is the opportunity for dialogue between the legal and health professions about legal and ethical issues of relevance to both practice and administration.
