AbstractThe author surveyed residents of fourteen Korean university hospitals to discover the effectiveness of current ethics education programs in this area. The survey participants reported that most of them regularly encountered serious ethical dilemmas and had difficulty in successfully managing these issues. Few respondents were familiar with medical law, and many did not follow proper procedures for obtaining informed consent. The author discusses some of the dilemmas faced by Korean residents and how they manage them, and finally offers some suggestions for improving ethics education and the environment for Korean medical students and residents.
