  • The doctor must consider all his patients in the same category, respecting their autonomy. Neither elitism nor authoritarianism have a place in medicine.
  • The most basic duty of the doctor is not to harm the patient. On the contrary, his main commitment is to do you good.
  • The doctor’s duty is to prevent disease, or cure it. Since he cannot always do so, he must then show solidarity and become a consoling agent.
  • The doctor who exercises his profession with greed, with a desire for profit, fails in his duty.
  • The doctor must refrain from acting if he does not consider himself qualified to do so. In medicine, doing nothing is often doing a lot. Medical audacity is not a good adviser.
  • It is the duty of the doctor to keep up to date on matters pertaining to his professional activity. An outdated doctor is not a pledge of guarantee for the society he serves.
  • The doctor, especially the surgeon, must know how to withdraw in time. The responsible exercise of medicine requires having all the senses and a right judgment so as not to expose oneself to loss.
  • The doctor must be aware that his status as such entails commitments to social causes, such that the problems of the most needy fall within his jurisdiction.
