Reviews

“The purpose is to provide an understanding of the basic ethical principles involved in clinical medicine. The book demonstrates the importance of medical ethics education through hands-on training rather than classroom lectures. … This is an excellent self-study resource for physicians and physicians in training who need an overview of medical ethics and its relationship to clinical medicine and research.” (Tyler Zahrli, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2015)
