Ethics Education in the Clinical Setting  
To integrate ethics education for medical students into the clinical setting, 
the University of California, Irvine College of Medicine is piloting an ethics 
liaison program.  Building on a study that demonstrated the benefit of ethics 
consultation in the intensive care setting, ethics committee members work with 
specific clinical units to offer instruction in the identification and resolution 
of ethical issues.  Goals of the liaison program include creating a dynamic 
environment for integrated ethics education and the development of ethics role 
models.
