The Association for Medical Ethics consists of physicians from every specialty of medicine. The purpose of the Association is to promote patient care and evidence-based medicine and to provide increased public awareness of the detrimental and pervasive financial influence of industry on many health care providers and patients. The Association for Medical Ethics promotes the care of patients absent of any consideration of financial gain or loss based on choice of surgical equipment, implant, manufacturer, hospital or surgery center. AME members practice informed consent and believe patients have a right to know if their doctor is a paid consultant or distributor for any manufacturer or product. The purpose of this website is to provide consumers and doctors the opportunity to view the opinions of the Association for Medical Ethics members and the most current unbiased research on the latest medical advancements.
