The Corrosion of Medicine
The Corrosion of Medicine
Can the Profession Reclaim its Moral Legacy?
by John Geyman

The Corrosion of Medicine shows that "We do not have to passively accept the role of being workers in an industry controlled by market entrepreneurs. ..."
--Don McCanne, M.D. See his full message at end of this web page.

"The medical profession and health care in the U.S. are in trouble, but the political ground is shifting in favor of a solution that can rescue both: single-payer health care," stated said Dr. John Geyman, author of The Corrosion of Medicine: Can the Profession Reclaim its Moral Legacy? and Past President of Physicians for a National Health Plan. In December of 2007, the American College of Physicians endorsed the plan. "The ACP endorsement of single payer is an important step forward for the medical profession. Instead of ideology and unbridled self-interest, they are putting patients' needs first," Dr. Geyman stated.
