Ethics and Medical Professionalism

Medical professionalism is attracting a great deal of attention nowadays, both from doctors and their medical associations and from the media and general public. There is clearly much overlap between ethics and professionalism, and anyone interested in medical ethics needs to be aware of developments in medical professionalism. This section of the WMA web site is intended to facilitate the interaction of ethics and medical professionalism at both theoretical/academic and organizational levels. To begin, we offer a list of resources for medical professionalism. Watch the What's New page for announcements of additional materials.
