  • Description: This course focuses on ethical, legal, and social issues and analysis arising from the increasing application of genetic technologies to the health of individuals and populations. The four course segments cover the technical and social background of population-based genetic interventions, decision making criteria used in assessing the feasibility of proposed genetic screening programs and gene therapy trials, policy frameworks, such as cost-effectiveness analysis and ethical reasoning, which can aid in the selection and design of genetic programs and policies, and the deliberative processes decision making bodies can use in resolving differing interests as policy is developed and adopted. Each segment involves didactic presentations and class exercises in which students will grapple with current and anticipated publicized dilemmas. The segments collectively are linked by examples common to each portion of the course.
