Abstract

The curriculum in ethics and professionalism at the Indiana University School of Dentistry is described. The principles upon which the program is based include integration throughout the entire curriculum, extensive use of cases and group discussion, and incorporation with the problem-based learning methodology used in the school. Symbolic events, such as a White Coat Ceremony and discussion of cases with Fellows of the American College of Dentists are used to reinforce the material. Evaluation of the students on ethical knowledge and behavior are conducted in simulations and in clinical ratings.
