“Ethics and Health Care”, at the beginning of 2nd year of MIM, intends to introduce and explore with students’ what kind of ethical problems/dilemmas may appear on their future clinical practice.
As we all know, Ethics are a significant part of any career, expressly in medicine. As futures medical doctors our students my understand that to be a good doctor is, undoubtedly, to work with ethics, to pay attention to the other person, their values, and principles, ethics is present in each action of medical practice.
Future doctors should have ethical skills and ethical sensibility to solve ethical problems/dilemmas, with an accurate examination of a problem/situation, and the ability to govern the best course of action.
Medical ethics not only distinguish between right and wrong – what is the right action/better answer/the prudence of action -, but also help healthcare professionals to select the greater good in medical situations.
Topics for presentation and plenary discussion:
- Ethics and End of life considerations
- Research involving adults with terminal illness
- Information required for informed consent
- A patient’s right to personal medical information
- Respecting patients’ decisions
- Physician’s rights
- Forced treatment of the mentally ill
You are all invited to attend this important moment for our students
