“why did our trip – and others like it- escape the ethical scrutiny applied to clinical research in developing countries?”

Matthew DeCamp, 2007

“problems addressed in short-term medical outreach are only symptoms of broader inequalities in health that require more radical solutions at the national and international level”

Matthew DeCamp, 2007

  • Research ethics

  • Medical missions/resource allocation


Leadership in medicine for the underserved vulnerable

“We as future physicians and participants in a program aimed at working to serve underserved and vulnerable populations should be particularly careful to ensure that we not only preach ethical practices but that we implement them in our own lives.”

AlisanFathalizadeh, 3rd year student, LMUV
