Abstract

Bioethics is an essential course for medical professionals. I am teaching this course to undergraduate students in Biomedical Sciences. To help the students understand the ethical issues and help the healthcare professionals in developing countries, I plan to establish a bioethics research project that involves various interaction between my students and Vietnamese medical students in collaboration with a lecturer at Hanoi Medical College. This project will allow the students to exchange their learning materials, to meet and discuss extensively about the ethical issues and how to apply ethics principles to solve real-life problems based on cases that they observe in Vietnam.
