Special Offer from Trinity International University

The CMDA National Convention bioethics sessions, plus additional independent study on any bioethics topic, can be done as a course earning one, two or three graduate semester hours of academic credit applicable to an MA in bioethics degree from Trinity International University or transferable to another institution. Such a degree provides a great credential for physicians, dentists and others who want to have opportunities to speak out on today's crucial bioethical issues within medicine and in the society at large.

With all courses available in an online or several-day-intensive format, the entire Trinity degree program can be completed in one or more years without relocating to Chicago. Those who are not already enrolled in the Trinity MA bioethics degree program but decide to do so as part of taking this course, can receive a $500 discount on a future course any time before December 31, 2018 after enrolling in the program. Those undecided about enrolling in a degree program can take the course and save the credit hours for a future degree. The course involves pre-convention reading, post-convention writing and a lunch meeting during the convention with the professor, who is Mayo Clinic physician William Cheshire, Chair of CMDA's Ethics Committee and of the convention bioethics track. 

Please call 847-317-7187 or email for more information including how to sign up for the course and shape it according to your interests.
