It is incredible to think that although the founders of medical ethics,
such as Hippocrates, published their works more than 2000 years
ago, the medical profession, up until now, has not had a basic,
universally used, curriculum for the teaching of medical ethics. This
first WMA Ethics Manual aims to fill that void. What a privilege it is
to introduce it to you!
The Manual’s origin dates back to the 51st World Medical Assembly
This booklet is dedicated to the memory of Alan E. Lindsay, MD (1923-1987) master teacher of electrocardiography, friend, mentor, and colleague. Many of the excellent ECG tracings illustrated in this learning program are from Dr. Lindsay's personal collection of ECG treasures. For many years these ECG's have been used in the training of medical students, nurses, housestaff physicians, cardiology fellows, and practicing physicians in Salt Lake City, Utah as well as at many regional and national medical meetings.
We are pleased to introduce a unique concept
for internal medicine board preparation. While
studying for our boards, we found many review
books but none that effi ciently provided high-yield
information in an easy-to-read table format. Our
colleagues, both recent residency graduates and
practicing physicians, were similarly frustrated with
the options available to study for the boards.
I Am Not My Breast Cancer is a book that will help women realize that they
are not alone when dealing with this disease. It will help their families,
friends, colleagues, and also their physicians—anyone who is part of the
fabric of their lives. It is a book that addresses what women are really feeling
during this time when their health is at risk and their emotions are
running high. It touches on the feelings they have about themselves
head-on, with no compromises and no punches pulled.
