Teaching ethics in university courses may benefit from different didactic approaches; nonetheless, it still seems unclear whether ethics teaching can be best offered in stand-alone courses or integrated into other courses, or perhaps both. We describe the experience derived from a structured teaching activity in the field of medical ethics, conducted during a lesson for the students of a rehabilitation university second-cycle degree course. The results are remarkable, and there has been very positive feedback from the students concerning the production of the oath and its contents, as well as about the proposed teaching method, resulting in great interest in clinical ethics.
