Physician Wellness and Professional Conduct: The Code of Medical Ethics

AMA April 1, 2014
This e-learning module incorporates animation, infographics, and scenario-based learning to help physicians identify and understand their ethical obligations to maintain their own wellness, help fellow colleagues in need who may be impaired, and promote a profession that places patient well-being and safety foremost. Data on physician impairment suggests approximately 15% of physicians will be impaired by psychiatric illness, alcoholism, or drug dependency at some point in their careers. The topics covered in this module explore behaviors which fall short of meeting the ethical and professional obligation to practice medicine in a manner that supports the highest quality of patient care including: practicing medicine while physically or mentally impaired; practicing medicine incompetently; engaging in unethical or illegal behavior; and engaging in disruptive behavior.
