Teaching Medical Ethics to Medical Students and GP Trainees
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1987 Sep; 13(3): 132-133.
Boyd, a theologian who is Scottish Director of the Institute of Medical Ethics, comments on a day he spent teaching two ethics sessions, one to a group of 8 first-year medical students and the other to a group of 30 or 40 general practitioner trainees. With the first group, the issues raised were new to some of the students and there was a lively discussion focused on such topics as new reproductive technologies, prenatal diagnosis and its eugenic implications, and the doctor's obligations to individual patients and to society. The GP trainees were slower to respond to their nonphysician teacher, but then warmed up to an exchange of views on the topics of abortion and confidentiality, often getting rather quickly to the nub of the relevant moral arguments and sometimes picking up on the philosophical arguments that had been presented.
