The Advanced Certificate Program in Research Ethics for
Central and Eastern Europe, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health-
Fogarty International Center, is composed of seven graduate courses developed
and taught by teams of American and European faculty. The purpose is to provide
a knowledge base and skill set that will allow Central and European students to
function as research ethicists and institutional leaders in their home
countries. The certificate courses are offered via distance learning, on-line,
through the Union Graduate College Bioethics Program in partnership with the
Department of Medical History and Ethics of Vilnius University.
Short seminars are offered on site at Vilnius University.
Except for these seminars, the Program design permits students to complete the
certificate without leaving their homes or jobs.
