Abstract

Xavier University School of Medicine, Aruba, is an offshore medical school located in the Dutch Caribbean. Most of its students come from the United States and Canada. Yet, they are immensely diverse in their religious affiliation. A study was conducted with students, asking them what their religious affiliation is. Then, they were presented with a series of hypothetical cases dealing with abortion, in vitro technology, embryonic stem cells, and euthanasia. They were asked to give their moral evaluation. The results came out showing that, as a general trend, respondents form their ethical opinions in the medical field, independently of the doctrines of their religious affiliations.
