Clinical medicine confronts physicians as residents and practitioners with daily ethical problems, such as understanding when to accept or seek to alter patient choices, what is an appropriate use of costly or limited medical resources, how much to disclose to patients about their condition and prospects and the risks of therapy, how to balance ethical responsibilities and legal hazards, how to handle the relationships to medical superiors, how to deal with the responsibilities to patients on whom as residents you are both learning from and giving care, and how to balance the clinical work with responsibilities to self and family during residency and practice. The course uses a short text and case discussion to provide a foundation of ethical knowledge for the learning and practice of clinical medicine.
