Ethics for PhD students

We offer postgraduate courses in research ethics for PhD students from medicine, pharmacy, social science, science and technology.

Research ethics is an important part of advanced academic learning. All sciences and academic disciplines give rise to complex ethical issues. Dealing with them requires theoretical and practical knowledge, including familiarity with relevant norms in science and society, knowledge which research ethics aims to provide. Our teaching is based on sound research and critical analysis.

We want you to develop ability to engage in critical and self-reflective discussion of theoretical and practical problems in research ethics and the various solutions proposed. We try to help students reflect and learn by dialogue and participation.

We offer courses for PhD students from Science, Technology, Social Science, Medicine and Pharmacy. If you are not at Uppsala University, we recommend out online research ethics training for medicine and the life sciences.
