Abstract

In this modern era practicing medical ethics has become more demanding. The advancement of science with new technologies, new therapies and complex clinical trials has resulted in a situation where the current principles and concepts of medical ethics alone are not adequate in situations. Therefore, teaching ethics to medical students in a broader way as medical bioethics would cover the implications that result following treatment or research and is more beneficial for patients or participants. This paper illustrates the need of transforming the teaching of medical ethics to medical bio ethics as a way forward.
