Ethicists and clinicans: the case for collaboration in the teaching of medical ethics.

Author information

School of Religions and Theology, Trinity College, Dublin.


It has become part of conventional wisdom that medical students experience a clear separation between the explicit ethics curriculum of the lecture room and the implicit curriculum of the clinic. This paper outlines and critiques some important assumptions made about the teaching of ethics in medical schools. It identifies the need for close collaboration between clinical and non-medical ethics teachers to advance the teaching of ethics in medical training.
