AbstractThe authors of this survey describe three inititiatives at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine that seeks to make ethics part of the curriculum by having students pursue a focused project which helps them blend values and ethics with medical research in a way that is not usually possible in a survey course. These in-depth experiences blend situated learning, reflective exercises, faculty mentoring, critical reading of literature, and constructive feedback in a prescribed but individualized curriculum.
