    This vignette takes the form of a fictional dialogue at a Masters in Clinical Education course team meeting whose members are facing the challenge of preparing students for ethical review of their proposed research. Depending on the focus of and context for their research, some students are required to submit research proposals to National Health Service ethics committees for their approval. The vignette explores through conversation the multiple perspectives within the team as to the warrant for research. By drawing loosely on examples from the field, it also considers the effect of ethical approval procedures on what is and is not legitimate educational research.
