The AMA Code of Ethics sets out standards of conduct or moral guidelines for the medical profession. It establishes the ethical basis for patient-physician relationships, including issues of consent, communication and confidentiality. Ethical guidance is also provided for genetic testing and reproductive medicine, end-of-life considerations, organ procurement and transplantation, and medical research. Guidelines also incorporate physician responsibility for community health, professional behavior and working relationships, as well as financial issues and maintenance of access to healthcare. This course will cover the principles of ethical and moral conduct, ethical relationships, privacy, consent and confidentiality, ethical practice of controversial medical topics and procedures, and provide an understanding of physician responsibility.
