Medical Ethics Education in Slovakia: Some of the Problems it Faces and Further Research Suggestions

From the 1970s on, much more attention has been given to medical ethics education than ever before. As such, medical ethics education and its importance have started to be accepted and acknowledged by the wider public and by academics as well. Slovakia is not an exception. Also here, considerable amount of attention and concern has been given lately to medical ethics and to medical ethics education. In this article, I will focus on medical ethics education for future physicians, namely on medical ethics education for students of general medicine in Slovakia. A survey on course contents, suggested studying plans and/or timetables of this field of study was conducted. On the basis of not only the survey, I will try to point out some of the problems medical ethics education currently faces and I will also make some suggestions regarding future research.
