BMedSc(Hons) - Oxford Bioethics Program
Every year since 2011, between two and five Monash medical students have undertaken BMedSc(Hons) in Bioethics at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford University . Students are co-supervised by a Monash University supervisor, usually from the Monash Centre for Human Bioethics, and a supervisor from the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics in Oxford. There is a competitive expression of interest (EOI) application process for this prestigious opportunity.
Expression of interest submissions and questions:
The expression of interest should consist of a one-page outline of your interest and experience in bioethics, including any specific area(s) of interest and a CV (compiled into a single document).
Submit your expression of interest via this form.
Email your queries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for expressions of interest: Monday 4th July, 2022 09:00 AM sharp
Interviews: Thursday 7th July, 2022 (5.00pm to 8.30pm AEST; via zoom)
Successful applicants will be notified by Monday 11th July
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. Students usually also enrol in at least one-term at Oxford University to accelerate their Bioethics skills. This program does therefore, have additional costs, including travel, accommodation and Oxford enrolment fees; those costs are partially offset by support from Monash Abroad and the Faculty, but students should still expect to have significant out-of-pocket expenses if they are accepted into this prestigious program. Students can also choose to participate in this opportunity while being fully-based at Monash University in Australia (avoiding the additional enrolment fees at Oxford).
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.
