At present, the phenomenon of doctor-patient conflict in our country is getting worse. The contradiction between doctors and patients can reflect that there are still many problems in medical ethics education in medical colleges and universities, and the lack of educational functions. In the current medical education process, there is a tendency towards ability education, coupled with the unreasonable design of medical theory courses, which leads to the simplification of teaching methods, and it is impossible to truly teach and educate people and cultivate high-quality skilled medical personnel for the society. Therefore, in order to build a more harmonious doctor-patient relationship, the concept of medical ethics education can be incorporated into the human physiology curriculum, so that the medical ethics education model can be successfully transformed. At the same time, teachers in medical schools should strengthen the innovation of education methods, which can essentially improve the teaching quality of medical ethics education and gradually alleviate the current doctor-patient contradiction.
