Moral ethical judgment on medical students of UMSA, medical in-terns and residents of Hospital de Clínicas and Hospital Obrero: Train dilemma survey.

    Introduction: The train dilemma is a mental excersise used widely in a diversity of disciplines. A train is going against 5 people. If we intervene a person could die instead of all five people. Theoretical Framework: During the months of June 2015 and August 2016 at the Faculty of Medicine UMSA, Hospital de Clínicas and Hospital Obrero a survey was made with answer choice yes and no, all the information was anonymous from medical students UMSA, medical interns and resident physicians of different specialties. The survey consisted of a moral dilemma (train dilemma) hypothetically it raised the possibility of sacrificing a life for five with 2 options: change the direction of the train (Question 1 of the dilemma) and pushing a stranger to the track (question 2 dilemma of the dilemma). Results: In question 1 of the dilemma, by comparison, residents and students were most likely willing to change the direction of the train. In question 2 of the dilemma residents and interns (compared with students) were most likely willing to push a stranger to the road to stop the train. Instead students are less willing to make this type of exchange.
