Application period not open

What does it mean to undergo medical screening, and when and why shouldn't such screening be offered? How do norms about sex, gender and kinship shape the ways in which we understand bodies as well as medical treatments, and when should this be seen as ethically troubling? Should bodily donations be performed out of altruism, as market-like exchanges or something else, and why or why not? How should priority-setting in health care take place and what are the core ethical issues in psychiatry? These and other questions related to biomedical ethics are discussed during this course, which examines different theoretical conceptions, arguments, cases and cultural understandings.
