MEDICAL SCHOOL Questions and Answers

ell me about the Terry Schiavo case and what do you think about it? What do you feel about Euthanasia, Abortion, Stem cell research? Jehovah Witness?

Euthanasia: talk about kvorkian

This question is to see if you are in touch with the controversies of modern medicine. It is okay if you are not familiar with the case they ask you about, just politely say you are not familiar but continue to offer your moral opinion once you have been given the scenario.

Know:
Patients wishes trump all
then living will
then family

your job as a doctor is to provide care, it is not your job to impose your beliefs on to the patient.
ex: pt want an abortion and you don’t believe it is right, you dont have to do it but you must refer the pt to a practitioner that will do it.
