The AMA Code of Medical Ethics currently provides physicians' ethical guidance on the provision of patient care. As the practice of medicine transitions to physician's becoming more employed within complex health care systems, physicians' ability to uphold fundamental professional commitments to patient well-being are being challenged. This 90-minute, live session features a panel of Drs Jesse Ehrenfeld, Michael Tutty, and Michael Suk of our AMA, who will discuss the role of health care system ethics from different perspectives in relation to the AMA Code of Medical Ethics. This forum, hosted by the Council of Ethical & Judicial Affairs (CEJA), will explore the ethical dilemmas physicians face while working in an evolving health care ecosystem and identify the diverging values among physicians and health care administrators.
