Volunteer or Paid Position: Volunteer

The Bioethics Department at Sinai Health offers studentship opportunities to students interested in bioethics. Students are matched with a supervisor and location (Mount Sinai Hospital and/or Bridgepoint Active Healthcare) depending on their interests and available projects. The studentship is ideal for those with an interest in ethical issues in women's and infants' health (including antenatal, perinatal, neonatal, fertility, labor and delivery, etc.) and complex care, rehab, mental health and adult medicine etc.

Goals of studentship

The student will work on an academic project relevant to the work and activities of the Bioethics Department. The project will work towards a manuscript suitable for academic publication or an academic poster.


We accept students from the traditional bioethics-feeder disciplines, including philosophy, medicine, nursing, social work, law, religious studies, as well as other clinical, humanities and social science disciplines.


The volunteer studentship in the academic year is centered on a project to be determined together by the student and supervisor. A minimum of 3 hours per week will be required during the academic year. Summer students will be required to commit a minimum of one day per week.
