Medical ethics is a branch of the bioethical science that refers to the ethics involved in the practice of medicine.
Medical practice may often involve decisions that require a strong sense of ethics. The canonical example is that of disconnecting a person from the life supporting devices, if he or she has been in deep coma for a long time.
However, medical ethics is present in almost all aspects of the medical practice, including diagnosis, assessments and administration of treatment.
