We believe

That the doctor-patient relationship is both sacred and confidential.

That the practice of medicine should be performed only by doctors and licensed medical professionals.

That state actors cannot and should not be engaged in the practice of medicine.

That the practice of medicine requires at a minimum a relationship with the patient, ideally an examination of the patient, and always, informed consent by the patient.

That all who practice medicine should be guided by the precept: First, do no harm.

Our Mission

OUR VALUES

Truth: We are true to our calling …. “First, do no harm.”

Justice: We combat injustice in the healthcare context—because injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Action: And we speak – always we speak – because we understand history:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. . .
