Making the Rounds: The Ethical Development of Medical Students in the Context of Clinical Rotations
Christakis, Dimitri A.
Hastings Center Report. 1994 Jan-Feb; 24(1): 6-12.
If medical schools (and, for that matter, postgraduate training programs as well) are to address their charge of promoting ethical behavior seriously, they need to move beyond static conceptions of "core values." They must replace stifling notions of "ethical homunculi" and "linear ethical growth" with models of dynamic value-systems, of ethical selves that develop in sympathy with the social and cultural context of modern hospital practice. They must recognize that the ethical dilemmas of students contain social and cultural elements combined in an emotive mixture, and that it is therefore misguided to address their dilemmas simply through analytic discussions of ethical principles at the bedside or in ethics grand rounds.
