Birth of a New Degree

Through a new master's degree program in bioethics, Penn will "train 20th Century medical professionals for 21st Century problems," according to CGS Spokeman Luise Moskowitz. The new degree, M.Bioethics, has been developed by SAS/CGS in partnership with PennMed's Center for Bioethics. See inside for details.
