The ethics of roles.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A distinction is made between ethical reasoning and moral behavior. Ethics courses in dental schools can aspire to improve the ability of students to reflect on ethical alternatives, but the most powerful influence for professional behavior comes from the role modeling of faculty members. The psycho-social, pedagogical, meta-ethical, and moral implications of faculty roles are examined. An example is given of how faculty assume this responsibility as they accept membership in the school community.
