What is ethical -- and what is not -- in medical writing and editing? While the medical editor or writer may not have ultimate responsibility for a published article or other work, they are responsible to understand such issues as authorship, acknowledgement, financial disclosures, conflicts of interest, "salami science," and how to flag ethical concerns and talk about them with authors or supervisors. This course uses the American Medical Association Manual of Style (10th ed.) to give an overview of issues medical editors and writers are most likely to face at work and help students develop tactful, yet morally courageous ways to handle situations that require ethical judgment calls.
