The American Medical Association conducted a survey in 1982 to ascertain how physicians evaluated the effectiveness of their education in preparing them to deal with the ethical issues they encountered in practice. The results, summarized in this article, indicate that physicians who had had courses in medical ethics perceived them to be of substantial practical value and recommended that their content be expanded. Data are presented on the relative frequency of specific ethical issues encountered in practice and on the relative influence of home, personal values, medical education, medical practice, and ethics courses on respondents' approaches to ethical issues.
