Mission of Department:
The Education Department ensures the effective and rational execution of the educational program of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics ( Haifa ).
The Department strengthens bioethics education as a whole through facilitating the Units of the Chair to move towards pursuing enhanced and effective international collaboration and intensifying relations with academic institutions and other partners, enabling easier access to bioethics education and systematic inquiry and analysis to make it possible for participants to put bioethics theory into practice.
As a center of bioethics education the Department will help Units design, plan and manage their bioethics education to advance students’ capacity for decision making on ethical issues and human rights considerations of medicine, health care and life sciences.
