Summary of Presentation:
Ethics, Professionalism, and Humanities Across the UMMC Curriculum: A Plan for Core Value Enhancement
Ralph Didlake, MD
The QEP process identified expansion of the traditional biomedical curriculum into the areas of ethics, professionalism, critical and creative thinking, communication with patients, families and staff, and team work as opportunities for UMMC to improve its student learning environment. An Ethics, Professionalism, and Humanities Across the Curriculum Program addresses these needs. This interdisciplinary, campus wide program leverages existing teaching resources to weave ethics, professionalism, and medical humanities into existing programs using embedded curriculum, e-learning, and simulation.
