Philadelphia—A decade ago, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) began a campaign to shore up physicians' "special place in society." Citing eroding professional standards inside medical schools and out, ABIM published a number of reports and guidelines defining and encouraging professionalism.
The movement spread as other groups expressed similar distress, coalescing 2 years ago as a project driven by the ABIM Foundation, the American College of Physicians–American Society of Internal Medicine Foundation, and the European Federation of Internal Medicine. The first fruits of the project have arrived as a charter outlining the ideals "to which all medical professionals can and should aspire." The charter is scheduled for widespread dissemination early next year.
