Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician Charter
In 2002, the ABIM Foundation, in conjunction with the ACP Foundation and the European Federation of Internal Medicine, authored Medical Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician Charter. The fundamental principles of the Charter are the primacy of patient welfare, patient autonomy and social justice. The Charter also articulates the professional commitments of physicians and health care professionals in the modern era. This seminal document has since been endorsed by more than 108 organizations and over 100,000 copies have been distributed.
