Working in Partnership

Our academic community is committed to sharing expertise with the wider world.
Working in partnership
In our Centre, we work closely with our students and alumni, as well as external professionals, and provide many opportunities for them to share their insights and expertise.
Our weekly inter-disciplinary research seminars run during term time. Speakers present on an ethical issue of their choice, then engage in an informal discussion. Many seminars are available on iTunes.
Our Medical Ethics Evening takes place each October, and involves talks and discussions on various issues in the field, accompanied by food and drinks. Students considering taking an intercalation year with us are especially welcome.
Our Annual Ilkley Colloquium on Health Care Ethics takes place each January, and features short talks and workshops from a range of speakers. Previous programmes are available for download.
