AbstractAlthough professional ethics have received a great deal of attention, there is relatively little research which examines differences in the ethical decision-making propensities of individuals attracted to different professions. Using the Rokeach value survey and several ethical decision-making vignettes, this research examines the value hierarchies and ethical decision choices of a cohort of students entering dental and medical school. The results show small but significant differences between these students in both their value hierarchies and their ethical decisions. More importantly, the results show that half of the decision choices made by both groups of students were considered unethical.
