The authors of this article conducted a survey to discover the kind and quality of training given to medical students on ethical considerations, legal comprehension, implementation of patients' rights, awareness of cultural differences, and communication skills. The results showed that only a few of the students surveyed had received training or instruction in these areas. The authors recommend that medical school curricula be expanded to include ethics education, and that clinical faculty need to have the tools and encouragement to help find ways to ensure that students acquire and are able to practice these skills.
