Annual Report on Medicine as a Profession

CMAP is working with the Institute for Health Policy at Massachusetts General Hospital to survey physicians regularly on attitudes and behaviors that embody key dimensions of professionalism. The first survey, now being fielded, is comprehensively addressing physician beliefs and activities concerning three central domains of medical professionalism: self-regulation and peer supervision; altruism and ethical behavior; and maintenance of technical competence. Annual surveys will continue to track changes in physicians' responses over time. The Annual Report will also contain a qualitative section that surveys key components of professionalism. These will include: altruism and moral commitment/putting patient interests first; the doctor-patient relationship; self-regulation; the maintenance of technical competence; and, civic engagement.
