dc.description.abstractThe American medical profession has publicly pondered its roles and duties since its inception in the 18th century. Recently, that discussion has included whether or not advocacy by physicians is a responsibility of the profession. The following work is an argument and plan to support the ethical, professional imperative of physician advocacy. The historical underpinnings of the American medical profession suggest a responsibility to patients and interactions with society. In addition, there is a strong bioethical argument in favor of physician advocacy as an essential duty. Although there is a well-recognized set of barriers to physician advocacy, this article details solutions to help implement advocacy as a daily practice in the lives of all physicians. This piece will describe a way forward for physicians to take on their professional responsibility to advocate.
