I am a physician and a philosopher with a doctoral degree in both disciplines. I work currently at the University of Tampere, Finland. I have taught medical ethics for 20 years and from the beginning included the distinction between facts and values as a central topic in my ethics classes. My research interests include conceptual issues in medicine, e.g., placebo effect, evidence-based medicine and the concept of CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine). I also work as a part-time paediatrician in private practice.
