This course will introduce those enrolled to ethical principles and formal codes of ethics, to key ethical issues that arise in international research. Ultimately, the course will be case-based to enable course participants to work through ethical challenges posed by research conducted in developing countries. Each daily session will be divided between a formal lecture and a case discussion. Case studies will be discussed in small groups and will be based on actual research projects in developing countries, including both clinical and epidemiological/observational research. The course is geared towards U.S. and international faculty, researchers and students who conduct or fund research in developing country settings and to those who sit on IRBs/research ethics boards. Student evaluation is based on case-study exercises and class participation.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: Identify a moral dilemma in research and understand what principles are at stake; List and understand the basic elements of informed consent; Review and analyze study descriptions for their ethics issues; Be aware of ethics issues and possible resolutions as they serve as researchers, ethics review board members, or funders of international research.
