As a medical practitioner in good standing with my state medical board in medicine, podiatry, or dentistry, I would like to join the Association for Medical Ethics (AME) in its mission to promote transparency in medical research and practice, and evidence-based medicine.
I agree with AME that there is a clear and present need to re-affirm and maintain a high level of integrity in the health care system, while also supporting ongoing open and legitimate innovation and creativity in a transparent fashion.
AME believes all persons have the full right to invent and patent products or procedures, collect royalties and earn consulting fees of any amount, as long as this represents legitimate reimbursement for inventions and services rendered and not disguised compensation for using or advocating a product. I also agree that being a member of AME requires that I have no ownership in, or receive any payments for, physician owned distributorships (PODs).
I understand, and consent, to the need for AME to perform due diligence in regard to my professional credentials as a means of confirming my qualifications for membership including but not limited to querying the National Practitioner Data Bank.
I agree that if the board of directors of AME finds me to be in violation of AME’s Ethical Rules of Disclosure that they have the right to withdraw my membership in the organization.
