Postgraduate Education in Medical Imaging & Radiation Oncology

Law, Ethics, Philosophy and Sociology in an international context

During this course we discuss different cases from a legal, ethical, philosophical and sociological perspective.
The aim of this course is to learn to view daily healthcare practice from a broader perspective. Ethical, philosophical, legal and social issues that influence daily practice will be discussed. The role that European thinkers and regulations have played – and still do – will be evident from the lessons.

Target group

The course is suitable for healthcare professionals with a bachelor’s degree or higher, who work or have an affinity with the (para)medical field. Potential students include graduated medical imaging and radiation experts, radio diagnostic technicians, radiation therapy technologists (RTTs), nurses and other interested health care professionals. 

Organizers and teachers

The course director is Hélène Jacobs. The teaching faculty consists of experts in law, ethics, philosophy and sociology.
