Medical Ethics, MSME
The Master of Science in Medical Ethics (MSME) provides rigorous methodological and conceptual training in bioethics for postdoctoral scholars who aim to become academic bioethicists competing for and conducting externally funded empirical research. Although there are many bioethics-related masters-level graduate programs in the United States, none of these programs is designed to train physician-scientists or other scholars aspiring to empirically oriented bioethics faculty positions in academic medical centers and universities. Penn’s MSME program fills this important need.
