BMS 6821 Medical Ethics and Humanities

Credit Hours: var.

This course will introduce the students to basic ethical principles and clinically relevant topics in medical ethics. Students will also participate in cases studies that require students to apply their knowledge to moral and ethical problems faced by physicians. The exposure to the medical humanities (through literature, art, music, etc.) will be used to illustrate and define moral and ethical problems, the physician-patient relationship, and the relationship of the physician to society. The course is intended to show how medical ethics and medical humanities are integral to the successful practice of the art of medicine and to the development of the complete physician.
