MD/Master of Bioethics (MBE)

The MD/Master of Bioethics program (MD/MBE) is designed to provide its graduates with the interdisciplinary training they will need in order to address the ethical, legal, and social challenges in health care today and in the future.

These guidelines offer prospective and current Perelman medical students specific information regarding components of the MD/MBE dual degree program. When students are accepted into the Master's in Bioethics program, they must take responsibility for following all regulations and policies of the Medical School and of the Master of Bioethics Program.
