Medicine and Society
With the aim of encouraging greater understanding of the importance of medical oaths and codes of ethics, we offer our readers who are teachers of medicine a PowerPoint® presentation that can be easily adapted for medical students, residents, and other physician audiences. This presentation provides a brief historical overview of medical oaths. Through the use of ethical scenarios, the presentation also highlights how the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics can provide valuable guidance to students and physicians who confront challenging issues in medicine.
