Members don't see this ad.
It is not uncommon to identify ethics entirely with one’s obligations to others, in effect construing one form of moral failure (selfishness) as expressing the basic character of all moral failure.

It made me think of the pre-allo forums. :laugh:

DKM- I'll have you know, that everyone going into medicine is of the highest morals! I've reported you for blasphemy. :laugh: :)

I could spend all day posting information I find interesting that is relevant to pre-med stuff. It would lead to people wanting to jump off a cliff! :laugh:

Oh please......one of the guys who is on the ethics committee at the AMA made a discussion about this in the aftermath of the SARS outbreak:
Clark, for instance, writing from (but not officially on behalf of) the ethics office of the AMA, praises the selfless service of doctors in the face of SARS, (18) but alerts us in the subsequent
exchange of letters (19) that this service is perhaps not as selfless as it appears: he characterizes this ‘selfless service' as something of a bargaining tool, and claims that the good that doctors bargain
for with this service is their status as independent practitioners, self-regulating, and beholden to no outside social body

Chew on that.....

SOURCES:
Both of the above quotes are from:
Reid L: Diminishing returns? Risk and the duty to care in the SARS epidemic. Bioethics 2005; 19: 348-361

The cited items are:
18) C.C. Clark. In harm's way. Hastings Center Report 2003; 33: inside back cover.
19) C.C. Clark. Reply. Hastings Center Report 2004; 34: 4.

Yes, but unlike what you post, what I'm posting about might actually come up as an issue in interviews or in a sticky ethical situation. :laugh:

Braluk,
Can't you put DKM on probationary status for blasphemy now that you are a moderator? How about just changing his title to "DropkickMurphy, Banned for Trolling"? Come on... I'll give you five bucks. ;)
