Study the theory that underpins effective decision-making in practice and develop your critical analysis skills. The University of Manchester’s range of flexible, interdisciplinary courses will deepen your understanding of ethical and legal issues in healthcare and will help you to build your confidence when faced with complex dilemmas. We offer a range of opportunities, from short affordable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses to full master’s. You can tailor your studies according to your needs and circumstances.

Studying one of our courses will help you to develop your understanding of ethical and legal issues in a diverse range of contexts. Whether it’s allocating healthcare resources, protecting patients’ rights, handling patients’ consent, matters relating to prolonging life, or issues around reproductive choices, our courses will help you develop your understanding and enhance your decision-making. 

The combination of online delivery with consistent support from our experienced and approachable academics will enable you to study while you work. 

Online doesn’t mean you’ll be working alone. You’ll have opportunities to collaborate with peers and academics through our virtual learning environment using discussion boards and informal support group chats.
