Bioethics Education Summer School Online

July 18 – 23 2022

Bioethics Education International (BEI) invites participants (students and professionals) across the globe to attend the summer school to be held from July 18 to 23, 2022.


The summer school includes lectures and seminars, film screenings, and special guest speakers. Stay tuned for the program to be posted next week!


The faculty will include experts and scholars with international reputations who will lecture and conduct seminars on current and futuristic topics related to bioethics, global health, medical and biosciences. 


All participants will have the opportunity to engage in an intercultural dialogue over a topic of interest of their choice, in breakout rooms, on the final day of the online school. Selected leaders will present the conclusions of each group to the final open forum.  


In collaboration with the Canadian Journal of Bioethics / Revue canadienne de bioéthique (a bilingual open access bioethics journal), we are planning a special issue to include submissions from participants, to be revised and submitted during Fall 2022 first to Dr. Ana Lita.
