What does it mean to be a “good” physician?  What sorts of moral formation can take place in medical school education? What does it mean to see medicine as a “vocation” and how does the practice of medicine have a moral dimension to it? These are hard, important questions that anyone planning on medical school (or already in medical school) should give time to contemplate. In this public panel, four experts from medical schools around the country will weigh in on these and other questions.
