Medical Ethics: The 16 Week Consult is designed to dispel the myth that it is intolerant and rude to criticize others moral positions and actions, and it will achieve its goal by carefully teaching students how to critically analyze moral reasoning, especially how it relates to common cases that arise during the practice of medicine.
Each chapter presents a topic in medical ethics, provides opportunities and exercises that promote critical reflection on each particular topic or issue, and then gives students the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a way that can be shared with instructors, the class, or both. As a result, both students and instructors can accurately determine what areas of study are deficient and in need of further work and clarification. The workbook also provides a template for classroom discussion, fostered by students’ completed work, which if uncompleted provides a means by which to evaluate the student.
