AbstractThis article describes a study which was aimed at identifying differences in attainment of learning outcomes for ethics courses delivered using a case based method in the context of applied moral issues within medical practice, and ethics courses delivered using a survey of moral theories in the context of applied moral issues. The author found that the case-based method allowed students to develop a higher level of moral decision-making skills, while the students who took the course that included the survey or moral theories in the context of applied issues attained a higher level in terms of outcomes related to personal beliefs about applied moral issues. The authors also share the assessment tool they developed to look at the success of these different courses.
