The Masters in Philosophy, Bioethics, & Health at VU University Amsterdam in the Netherlands is an education program which aims to educate professionals in medical ethics and philosophy, and to foster their capacity to reflect on new challenges within healthcare.

VU's 2-year Masters in Philosophy, Bioethics, & Health covers the issues of today's healthcare such as rapid technological and scientific developments, healthcare providers losing their independence, and the growing number of people living well into old age.
