Two new iCourses from the University of Arizona Health Sciences are coming to you this summer—wherever you are. 


The University of Arizona Health Sciences is continuing to expand online course offerings available through the five Health Sciences colleges. This is part of the overall mission to increase access to health sciences education at home and around the world. 


ETH 501 Biomedical Ethics and Global Corruption

Students will examine the differences between law and ethics and determine the ways they work together in the context of biomedical issues in this course taught by David Beyda, MD, chair and professor of the Department of Bioethics and Medical Humanism and director of Global Health Programs at the College of Medicine – Phoenix. 



CPH/GHI 537 Evidence-Based Methods in Maternal and Child Health  

July 5 – August 19  

Students will learn from John Ehiri, PhD, MPH, MSc, professor in the Department of Health Promotion Sciences at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, as they gain the skills needed to function as reflective maternal and child health practitioners.

Both courses are open as iCourses to current University of Arizona Main Campus and Phoenix Biomedical Campus graduate students of any major and are conveniently offered in a fully online and asynchronous format, allowing students to participate from wherever they have an internet connection. Interested students can navigate to and search by subject and course number to review schedules and availability.
