This course will introduce students to the main values and principles that drive decision-making in public health research and practice. Through a case study approach, students will be exposed to different ethical theories and their application in real-life public health scenarios, such as resource allocation, individual autonomy versus the needs of the community, and protecting vulnerable populations. In addition, principles of research ethics will be discussed and students will be exposed to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) application process.
