Ethics Tests for Medical Boards: The State of the Question
Hastings Center Report. 1983 Jun; 13(3): 20-33.
Callahan introduces five articles drawn from presentations made at a December 1982 meeting at The Hastings Center. William Ruddick, in "What should we teach and test?," discusses the skills and knowledge that ethics tests on medical boards might evaluate. Ruth Macklin and Johanna Jones describe "The experience of the National Board of Medical Examiners" in assessing competency in medical ethics; Lynn O. Langdon and Albert R. Jonsen describe "The experience of the American Board of Internal Medicine"; Vanessa Merton discusses "Ethics tests in the legal profession"; and Carol Levine, in "Do ethics tests get a passing grade?," summarizes various views on the use of oral examinations and on the effects of ethics testing on ethics teaching.
