ETHICS & PROFESSIONALISM IN TEACHING THE ANATOMICAL SCIENCES

UM’s Tom Champney, a Professor of Cell Biology and Institute for Bioethics Faculty member, helped develop an unprecedented course on “Ethics & Professionalism in Teaching the Anatomical Sciences.” The resources are free and “designed to support the development of medical ethics and professionalism in health professions students while they are taking anatomy or biomedical courses.”
