Welcome to the Forum on Medical Business Ethics

Welcome to the Bander Center's Forum on Medical Business Ethics. The Forum will serve as a repository for stories by physicians about how business relationships affect their practice of medicine and conduct of research. The first installments are borrowed from a project that was led by several Bander Center affiliates. In 2011, we published a symposium in the journal Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics on Conflicting Interests. The "narrative symposium" included 10 stories by physicians and two commentary articles.

We thank the Johns Hopkins University Press for allowing us to reprint these stories. It is our hope that physicians will regularly contribute new stories to this Forum. We are using a Blogger technology to host the Forum to enable moderated discussion. Faculty may use these stories freely in educational programs that serve physicians and physicians-in-training.

Best, James M. DuBois
