West Kendall Baptist Hospital GME Conference Series: The New Role of Professionalism in American Medicine

Miami, FL US
July 14, 2016

In the past three decades, due to pressures from third party payers and the proliferation of an anti-medical litigation industry, physicians in the U.S. have begun to practice medicine defensively and under pressures that were not present in years past. These factors have caused an erosion of medical professionalism that has negatively affected the doctor-patient relationship. This lecture will address how to improve medical professionalism, which has a positive impact on the doctor-patient relationship.
