That's a very good example. I think need some arguments for and against. Like you can't force social changes on the patient, e.g. weight loss, quit smoking and etc. That's the only things I can think off

Well what if a community in remote Nepal has a large elderly population with high rates of cataracts and you use your medical ability to operate and cure their cataracts? It will have a societal change on the level of the village/community you helped people in. Social change. You could also write books/ go into education or academia.

You really need to elaborate.

What exactly do you want from us? How did you want to enact social change through going to med school?

I think its more like forcing patients to change socially. The problem, however, is u can't force a patient as you have to consider patient autonomy.

Possibly but you don’t have to force anything on people to cause change in society, you are helping people with their own concent in the examples I listed. But of course there are doctors in the past and now who have forced things on patients against their will.

Yeah. It could also include vaccinations, which will help a society to eradicate a specific disease. I have lots of arguments for why doctors shouldn't try to cause a change in society rather just cure and manage the patient. I haven't got any arguments for why they should, and even if it breaks the idea of autonomy. Thx

Well this is... broad.

The first thing that jumps to mind for me, is that the medical professional is meant to put the needs and considerations of the patient first. If you enter the scenario with your own personal agenda, it is impossible to prioritise the patient experience above that.

Doctors also have a position of power, in the sense that they are looked up to by... well... everyone. Forcing (or manipulating) an opinion on someone, under the role of a Doctor, is a misuse of that power.

I'm still confused how being in medical school and causing social change are related though. What even is the context of the essay?

If you are preparing for ethical scenarios and questions be familiar with the four pillars of medical ethics, and relate your answer to each point if you want to keep it simple and become familiar with each point.

It was a previous Bmat essay. Thank you for ur points. No, it's more like someone's entering medical school (allowing them to be a doctor) just to cause social change

There are lots of studies on this. This link would give you an idea of how to answer the first part. For the last question, you should focus on how doctors can abuse their authority.
