Summary/Abstract: In recent decades, the study of bioethics has widely spread all over the world, especially in medical schools. In Romania, Bioethics was introduced later and there are no comprehensive studies on its impact on medical practice and biomedical research. The aim of this research is to evaluate how the utility and relevance of bioethics courses is perceived within specialized academic programs in western Romania. As methodology, a questionnaire was created and applied to 154 respondents, from 4 counties of western Romania. The data obtained was collected and processed using simple statistic tools and the SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) program. We measured simple distributions, different correlations, based on calculation of r and p coefficients, cross-tabulations, and the results were analysed, some correlations being established.
