Professionalism Department

MARK WICCLAIR and DAVID BARNARD

In this issue of CQ, we are pleased to inaugurate a new Department, Professionalism, with an article by Jeffrey Blustein entitled “When Doctors Break the Rules: On the Ethics of Physician Noncompliance.” The article examines the ethical dilemmas physicians face when they believe that promoting the best interests of patients requires them to break one or more institutional rules.

Mark Wicclair, Ph.D., is Professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Professor of Medicine at the West Virginia University and Adjunct Professor of Medicine in the Center for Bioethics and Health Law at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

David Barnard, Ph.D., J.D., is Professor of Medicine and Law at the Center for Bioethics and Health Law at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
