A combination of moral principles and values that are applied to take judgements in medical education, practice, and research are termed as medical ethics. There have been other many traditional medical ethics guidelines brought about by Muslim Ishaq ibn Ali al-ruhawi wrote "the Conduct of physicians", Jewish and Catholic scholastic thinkers over time. Ethics in modern medicine started way back in 18 th century when Thomas Percival, a physician based in England, wrote a book on medical ethics and coined the terminology of medical ethics and medical jurisprudence. The medical profession should be viewed differently and a rethought on the ethical practices is the need of hour to make it an exciting and fulfilling profession. A rethink on the status of modern medicine will certainly pave the way for obtaining specific answers for many dilemmas in modern medicine including the best ethical codes and practices.
