Abstract

This PhD thesis analyses the multi religious and multi cultural background of India to propose a core curriculum for bioethics/medical ethics in the distinctive pluralistic context of the country. A detailed study of the multiplicity in the areas of ethnicity, religious affiliations, medical traditions, cultural priorities, linguistic barriers etc. allows to have a profound scrutiny into the unique Indian scenario where the ethics curriculum in the health care system is put forward. With a broader enquiry into the potential frameworks in the society that can foster the dissemination of bioethics in the country and a deeper investigation through the institutions where the medical ethics curriculum already exists, the research finds its ways to propose the core curriculum in bioethics/medical ethics for India.
