Abstract

Scientific integrity courses for graduate trainees are emerging at many institutions. The content of such courses varies and is evolving as faculty strive to meet the needs of their specific student audiences. Typical course subject matters include responsible authorship, conflict of interest, handling of scientific misconduct, data management, and the use of humans and animals in biomedical experimentation. These and other topic areas are amenable to teaching methods that use the case study approach. In this article we discuss our experiences in teaching scientific integrity using the case study approach. Issues covered include underlying philosophy of the approach, preparation and use of cases, desired inclass teaching skills, and the involvement of faculty in case preparation and teaching. Examples of short cases are presented and, where appropriate, discussed in the context of these issues.
