The Physician Charter on Professionalism was developed through a
collaboration of the ABIM Foundation, the ACP Foundation and the
European Federation of Internal Medicine.
Professionalism is the basis of medicine's contract with
society. It demands placing the interests of patients above those
of the physician, setting and maintaining standards of competence
and integrity, and providing expert advice to society on matters of
health. The principles and responsibilities of medical
professionalism must be clearly understood by both the profession
and society. Essential to this contract is public trust in
physicians, which depends on the integrity of both individual
physicians and the whole profession.
At present, the medical profession is confronted by an explosion
of technology, changing market forces, problems in health care
delivery, bioterrorism, and globalization. As a result, physicians
find it increasingly difficult to meet their responsibilities to
patients and society. In these circumstances, reaffirming the
fundamental and universal principles and values of medical
professionalism, which remain ideals to be pursued by all
physicians, becomes all the more important.
The medical profession everywhere is embedded in diverse
cultures and national traditions, but its members share the role of
healer, which has roots extending back to Hippocrates. Indeed, the
medical profession must contend with complicated political, legal,
and market forces. Moreover, there are wide variations in medical
delivery and practice through which any general principles may be
expressed in both complex and subtle ways. Despite these
differences, common themes emerge and form the basis of this
charter in the form of three fundamental principles and as a set of
definitive professional responsibilities.
