Ethics, Advertising and the Definition of a Profession
Dyer, Allen R.
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1985 Jun; 11(2): 72-78.
The status of medicine as a self-regulating profession, rather than as a trade subject to antitrust regulation, is being challenged in the U.S. and in other countries concerned about high medical costs. Dyer examines the implications of this challenge, focusing on the role that codes and traditions of medical ethics play in defining medicine as a profession, and on the ethics of medical advertising in particular. He suggests that the medical profession should pay more attention to its service ideal at this time when the activities of physicians are widely perceived to be commercial and impersonal.
