Education and Moral Respect for the Medical Student
Martin, Christopher
Ethics and Education, v11 n1 p91-103 2016
In this paper I argue that medical education must remain attuned to the interests that physicians have in their own self-development despite ongoing calls for ethics education aimed at ensuring physicians maintain focus on the interests of the patient and society. In particular, I argue that medical education should advance (and abide by) criteria defining what counts as an educationally worthwhile activity from the perspective of the medical student understood as a learner. I offer a preliminary account and justification of such criteria, arguing that such criteria warrant a process of ethical formation that better serves the interests of medical students, their patients and society.
