Biomedical Ethics and its Need.
J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll Jan ;7(1):53-5.

The history of medical ethics dates back to the time of Hippocrates. The involvement of philosophers, anthropologists, religious scholars and lawyers in the field of ethics gave birth to a new subject ‘Bioethics.’ After the human experimentations of World War II, other inhuman activities were carried on in which humans were merely used as guinea pigs. Therefore ‘Bioethics’ was evolved.The medical professionals should be informed about the problems and issues which are emerging. That is the reason why Biomedical ethics should be discussed with the students of health profession right from the beginning of their medical carrier. This will bring a change in the future health professionals.The doctors are required to act morally in addition to be skilled in their subject. If we want our students to be morally and ethically reflective upon the present day issues then it is a must to teach them and introduce them with the subject of Bioethics.
