Medical ethics involves the application of a moral code to the practice of medicine. By their very nature ethical dilemmas can be difficult to navigate. GPSTs often find it hard to submit relevant evidence for their ePortfolio. This is where the MDU can help.
Our Ethics in general practice e-learning course has been designed specifically for GP trainees. It's interactive and gives you the tools you need to assess ethical dilemmas, create a plan of action and be confident in explaining your decisions.
Find out more details about the content of the modules in the course outline. You can work through the modules at your own pace. It's good to complete the introduction and part one in your first year of training, part 2 in your second year, and part 3 in your final year.
Parts one and two are available now. Part three will be available soon.
If you're a GP trainer and would like access to this course, please email us and we can set this up for you, even if you're not a member.
