This project will create a model undergraduate bioethics course that: (1) gives minority students a deep understanding of bioethics problems salient in their communities, (2) highlights real-world projects by minority physicians and researchers to address these problems, and (3) supports students through mentoring and research opportunities. All students will be better able to identify and respond to bioethics problems, regardless of their career choices. But the course seeks to inspire and encourage minority students to pursue graduate education and include bioethics as part of their studies.
