Abstract

Medical Council of India has specified the various unethical acts and misconduct in ‘Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics Regulations 2002’.Though medical ethics is not a separate subject, it is being taught as a part of Forensic Medicine in 2nd MBBS. Every medical practitioner should be aware of these codes and should apply them in their daily practice. Medical students are the budding doctors of tomorrow. It is imperative that the medical students are also aware of these codes during their student days so that they can apply them in their future practice. So, the present study attempts to look for the awareness amongst the various years of MBBS students of Kasturba Medical College, Manipal about these codes. In our study it was found that the knowledge of medical ethics was more in 4th year students in comparison to 2nd year and 3rd year students.
