Medical ethics can be traced back to the Hippocratic Oath of antiquity, which in recent decades has seen much attention to medical ethics and its effects, which has made medical ethics an essential part of medical education worldwide. In different courses, various educational methods have been used to teach this, However, during the COVID-19 epidemic, students faced numerous challenges due to limitations due to cancellation or disruption of clinical education programs, especially medical ethics courses.
Scientific evidence also shows that Covid-19 has made medical ethics more vulnerable than ever before.At the time of writing this article, more than 100 medical ethics articles have been published during Covid-19, which is a testament to the challenge of medical ethics during Covid-19.But we did not find a study that considered the use of digital elements to teach medical ethics in post-Corona, therefore given the attractiveness of multimedia online education in medical ethics education and its tremendous impact on learning relative to attendance, it is suggested, in the post-Corona, that digital elements be used as a valuable contributor, either as a supplement or alone in medical ethics education. In addition to the ability to recover, digital education provides added educational value and helps to deepen the issue. In general, we support the preservation of the elements of digital education in medical ethics as a complement to face-to-face training or as a fully online training for post-corona.
