BMedSc(Hons) - Bioethics at Oxford Covid-19 impacts - International placement may not be an option in 2021
For the Oxford Bioethics placements, we have agreed with the Oxford team that the students can plan to work from Australia based with their Monash supervisors until restrictions on staff and student travel are lifted (assuming they do get lifted at some point next year).
Students will liaise with their Oxford supervisors via zoom and email until that happens.
For the last ten years, medical students have undertaken BMedSc(Hons) in Bioethics at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford University under the supervision of Professor Julian Savulescu. The Faculty is pleased to announce that such an opportunity will again be possible in 2021 in conjunction with the Centre for Human Bioethics at Monash University. Students can be based in Oxford at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics or in Melbourne at the Monash Centre for Human Bioethics.
Students choosing an Oxford based program will be co-supervised by a member of the Uehiro Centre and a member of the Centre for Human Bioethics. Students will be provided with access to bioethics educational resources and have the opportunity to attend relevant lectures, seminars and workshops. However the work will be primarily research and a high level of independence and maturity are required.
This scholarship was established from funds donated by the Victorian Medical Insurance Agency and introduced to encourage and attract students to pursue an undergraduate honours degree in medical sciences. The scholarship will assist financially disadvantaged students, who may not have had the opportunity to complete their degree without the scholarship, to gain a greater understanding of academic medicine whilst making their own contribution to the advancement of knowledge. As a condition of this scholarship, recipients will provide leadership, tutoring and mentoring to other medical students residing in on campus accommodation.
This bursary has been introduced to support students who want to pursue a BMedSc(Hons) project with the School of Rural Health. The bursary will assist students financially, and is provided whether projects are based at one of our rural sites or have components that can be conducted from Melbourne. Once students identify a project and co-supervisors, the details of the bursary support can be determined with the project supervisors.
One type of bursary is available.
Up to $10,000 is available for student support. Examples of this support includes accommodation at an MRH site, conference support, research upskilling short courses.
One bursary per student (student cannot hold another BMedSc(Hons) scholarship concurrently).
Domestic student accepted and enrolled into BMedSc(Hons) course in 2021.
