This course gives students a foundation in bioethics and the obligations of medical practice as coming from a social contract. It serves as the foundational course to prepare students to make daily ethical decisions related to ethical issues, challenges, and dilemmas they will encounter as students and socially accountable physicians. The course provides historical background on the social and moral foundations of modern medicine. Students review the major medical oaths and codes; work through cases; and analyze the ethical basis of decision-making by focusing on informed consent and advance care planning. They discuss the social and cultural factors in patient-doctor interaction, including implicit bias. Students are also introduced to the role and value of the humanities and arts in medicine. Prerequisite: Enrolled in the College of Medicine. First-year, fully online course. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database.
