Medical Ethics Case Studies
The AMA Journal of Ethics is the American Medical Association's MEDLINE-indexed ethics publication. The journal is advertisement-free and open-access. We strongly believe that ethics education for physicians and physicians-to-be is in the public's interest and should be made available without charge. Founded in 1999, the AMA Journal of Ethics explores the ethical issues and challenges that students, residents, and other physicians are likely to confront in their training and daily practice. This journal is a valuable teaching resource for medical educators at all levels. Therefore, each monthly issue contains original articles and commentary on a given theme-e.g., access to care; quality-of-life considerations in clinical decision making, public roles of physicians, ethical issues in a given medical specialty, new medical technologies, conflict of values in the clinic, and so on.
