"I would like to make a request: you continue teaching; it is necessary formation of quality; there are many health care professionals in the middle of much change who need a formation like he offers the institute..."

Dr. Juan Antonio Suárez



The interest shown by health care professionals and frequent requests of the people in charge of hospitals and heatl care centers has encouraged us to reflect on the convenience of offering, to all of them, a basic formation for the clinical bioethics as a first contact with this discipline, providing an alternative to the postdegree studies that at the moment we offer under the title of Masters in Bioética, which often raise economic and/or scheduling difficulties. Because of it, Borja Institute of Bioethics (IBB) has wanted to create these introductory courses, with a wide social reach and limiting the number of students in benefit of the effectiveness. The courses are offered twice each year, spring and fall, with class meetings concentrated into a two-month period.The IBB also offers the possibility of following the course by Internet (virtual modality) through our campus. Please visit our section “Distance learning” if you want additional information


The aim of the course is to provide specific and complentary introductory knowledge of the Bioethics to professionals of diverse fields and, specially to physicians, nurses, socials workers, lawyers, philosophers, economists, biologists, and other related disciplines.

Number of places available

A maximum of 50 students per course. The IBB reserves the right to cancel the course if there is not a minimum of students enrrolled.
