Ethics Poll

Who's Watching the Doctor?

The Ethics Poll is a snapshot of the opinions of interested readers.

If I saw a colleague cheating on an exam, I would:
Should there be a cap on how much money a patient can receive for noneconomic damages when suing a physician?
Should there be a system of 360-degrees evaluation in medical education training?
Do you think pharmaceutical marketing strategies have any effect--direct or indirect--on patient care?
My medical school has curriculum that discusses professional self-regulation in medicine.
Poll results reflect the opinions of visitors to the site who voluntarily answer the poll questions. Those visitors do not represent a random sample of Virtual Mentor readers.
