Human disease in its biological manifestations and treatment modalities is universal in nature. But what constitutes the “right” or ethical thing to do in the practice of medicine is particular, inevitably shaped by existing values and beliefs, socioeconomic realities, and available healthcare circumstances. In this Medical Center Hour, surgeon and ethicist Dr. Farhat Moazam illustrates the challenges of “doing” bioethics in clinical practice by sharing her experiences as a physician in Pakistan.
