Ethics in the Practice of Medicine


AmeriClerkships Medical Society is an organization dedicated to assisting international medical graduates to find a residency match in the United States. AmeriClerkships Medical Society provides a specialized service and leverages its connections and resources to help its members stand out from others in the medical residency process.

One of the key characteristics that hospitals evaluate in the residency process is ethics. Ethics can be summarized as the study of what an individual should do. An unethical doctor has the potential to cause numerous problems for a program as well as future patients and employers; therefore, candidates’ ethics receive much scrutiny during the application process.

Residency programs examine the ethical backgrounds of applicants to ensure that the applicant has not demonstrated behavior that would compromise their professional judgment or competence in stressful situations. While it may be difficult for a residency program to assess an applicant’s morality, there are certain questions that are asked to provide a program with necessary insight into an applicant’s character. For instance, a residency application may include questions related to a person’s attitude on ethical issues or general questions designed to provide insight into an applicant’s personal attributes.
