The teaching of bioethics in the faculties of medicine should be inserted, like the rest of the subjects, in the framework of competences. Define knowledge and develop specific skills, is also the objective of this discipline. This article presents a proposal of competence and content for the teaching of bioethics, articulated in the two levels (preclinical and aged) that characterized the teaching of medicine.
