ABSTRACT
Teaching both English in medical field and bioethics to medical students in Korea is becoming more and more important. We have investigated the present status of medical English and bioethics lectures in medical schools in Korea. We have taught bioethics in medical English class and investigated its effect through questionnaire. Less than two thirds of the 35 medical schools in Korea have medical English and /or bioethics lectures. Mainly English medical terms were taught in premedical course in most of the school which needs to be improved. Evaluation of the bioethics lecture in medical English class was responded favorably by the students. In conclusion, teaching bioethics in medical English class in English appears to be an effective way of teaching both English and bioethics in medical field at the same time and a good way of saving time by teaching both simultaneously.
