Multidisciplinary Teaching in a Formal Medical Ethics Course for Clinical Students
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1988 Sep; 9(4): 125-128.
A successful feature of the 4th-year curriculum in the Medical Faculty of the Queen's University, Belfast has been the development of interdisciplinary teaching in a three-week joint course to which several clinical departments contribute...Co-ordinated teaching of topics of common interest in small groups included, until the academic year 1987/88, a three-hour session on medical ethics. In the spring of 1987 the authors approached the Department of Philosophy at Queen's; subsequently proposals for a formal multidiscipinary course in medical ethics for 4th-year clinical students in the Medical Faculty, for the academic year 1987/88, were approved by the Education Committee of the Medical Faculty.
