“You learn all the basic ethics involved with health care and biological sciences. Kluge is extremely overqualified to be teaching; he is a wealthy source of knowledge and inspires you to think critically about everything. But it’s not that easy. The course really sets you up well for going into the medical profession, and makes you question whether it’s really for you when you realize many of the stark realities of it. I feel it also has better prepared me for future medical school interviews.”
“Going into medical school, this will be very useful as I learned so much about medical ethics.”
