British Medical Association's call for review of medical ethics training.

As reported in today's Scotsman, the British Medical Association today (i) published an 800-page 2nd edition of Medical Ethics Today, and (ii) called for a government-funded review of how effectively ethics and basic law are being taught in medical schools and how the system can be improved. A table of contents and a sample chapter are available from the BMA's web site and can be ordered here. It's a pricey paperback (£60) and they charge £18 for shipping to the US - converted to $US the total comes to about $134.42. You can get it for the same £60 but for a lot less in shipping charges through Amazon-UK.
