Medical ethics is a topic of increased importance in the medical school curriculum, and this textbook provides a wealth of knowledge aimed specifically at medical students rather than experienced practitioners. Realistic case studies introduce the discussion in each chapter, making this text highly suitable for case-based courses. This text includes practical coverage of all the issues likely to be of concern to students during their medical careers.
