    I'm finishing a paper on medicolegal, professionalism and ethics for the pre-clinical medical student: A student's review

    I would like to know anyone's opinion on the teaching of these subjects in their schools.

    by the way, are there anyone from Mount Sinai med school here? Because one of the papers I was referred to was an article written by one of the students in regards to the teaching of professionalism there. I would like to know the outcome of that paper ie. have the recommendations been carried out

    Thanks!

    AMC has a 4-yr long course called Health Care and Society, and it addresses those sort of issues. It isn't taken too seriously, but as it is P/F, it is viewed benignly.

    Are there any particular questions you wanted to ask? Your original question seemd a bit broad; perhaps a narrower topic would generate more responses.
