Medical Ethics in 2024
Hosted by the Early Career Physicians Section
Physicians frequently find themselves facing moral questions and ethical dilemmas in the practice of medicine. Medical ethics provides a framework to help physicians make judgement calls that are morally sound and right for their patients. It’s essential for early career physicians to have a good moral compass and a solid grasp of medical ethics so that they can consistently do what is best for their patients. This interactive webinar will help you explore the key pillars of medical ethics and navigate the AMA Code of Medical Ethics as a guide for your professional practice.
