Forensic & Legal Medicine

Our lectures for these three weeks take action in UCD campus. A little pause from whites coats, formal blouses, slacks, ties...but get ourselves into jeans and casual lively attire again.

These days, I always lost myself while listening to lectures of Forensic & Legal Medicines. Lost in a way that I would imagine myself as a coroner, sometimes as a solicitor, or even sometimes even as a barrister in court! Hehe. The barristers who came to teach us did very good job that we were all mesmerized and engrossed into the topics and cases. That's the fun side of it...indeed it is an interestingly capturing module.

On the other side, especially when it came into certain moral issues, I really got lost in the space not understanding why on earth must we study those redundant theories. Disputation of destiny colors the gist. And I have to sit still...for the purpose of exam. Oh I feel loathsome!

(In memoir of) The Principle of Ethics:

1. Beneficence: The health of my patient will be my first consideration.

2. Autonomy: I will respect the secrets that are confided in me, even after the patient has died.

3. Justice: I will not permit the consideration of religion, nationality, race, party politicsor social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient.

4. Non-maleficence: I will maintain the utmost respect for human life from its beginning even under threat and I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity.

What basic remains basic.
