Does this integrated law and ethics curriculum promote ethical thinking?

M. J. Bebeau

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In an invited response, the Detroit Mercy, School of Dentistry combined ethics and law four-year curriculum is analyzed. Previous models combining law and ethics have shown more success in the former than the latter. Additional concerns include the lack of an explicit measure of ethical outcomes such as moral reasoning and the assumption that ethical activities engaged in by novices such as the White Coat Ceremony and early written assignments demonstrate competence.
