Ethics Chair

Professionalism and ethics are obligations to our patients and their loved ones.  While we are occupied with upcoming exams and getting clinical requirements signed off, we still need to adhere to and become educated about what is expected of us as future and just healthcare providers.

Examples of Key, Current Issues:

  • Discrimination...against patients, colleagues, applicants

  • Treatments...balancing what the best plan is while keeping insurance plans in mind

  • Pregnancy...as a student and in practice or other professional atmosphere

  • Prescriptions...leading to drug addictions (i.e. opioids)
