AbstractIn order to develop a a curriculum in ethics in family practice, the authors sent out a total of 475 questionaires to graduates of the Department of Family Medicine at the McGill University Faculty of Medicine who were in their first and second year of professional practice. The questionnaire asked respondents to evaluate a series of 14 ethical dilemmas in order to determine the importance of covering specific ethical issues in the curriculum, and to determine the preferred method of teaching. Overall little difference was found in the frequency of of the dilemmas in order to determine the importance of teaching specific ethical issues as well as to determine the preferred format for teaching. The authors found little difference in how faculty and residents, and men and women, perceived the importance of these ethical issues. The authors also found that small-group, case-oriented discussion appears to have been the favored teaching format.
