World Medical Association, Resolution on Medical Group Practice (1988).


Adopted by the 40th World Medical Assembly
Vienna, Austria, September 1988


WHEREAS medical care is organized throughout the world in many different ways, from absolute freedom to practice medicine to medical services organized exclusively and completely by the State and
WHEREAS examination of the economic and social contexts within which these health care systems exist reveals a diversity of medical need and community objectives, and
WHEREAS a pluralism of structure for the provision of medical care is needed to fulfill those needs and objectives,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, hat the World Medical Association supports the concept of medical group practice as one method for providing continuous quality medical care within the context of medical ethics.
