MPRA-500 Ethics of Regulatory and Clinical Affairs
Fall for 2017-2018
The Ethics course is a core course in all Georgetown SCS MPS programs. In the first part of this course, students are introduced to ethical methodologies, principles, values, and frameworks. In the second part of the course, students study discipline- and field-specific codes of ethics within the profession. The course explores the ethical responsibilities of all regulatory affairs professionals to themselves, corporations, the government, and the public. Discussions include ethical situations based on past and current real-world scenarios, with topic discussions focusing on the ethical issues faced by regulatory professionals. During their final project, students codify an individual code of ethics in relation to professional codes of conduct.
