As an active member of his professional community, Dr. Roger T. Adler is a member of the American Medical Association (AMA).

The American Medical Association recently released a newly updated version of its Code of Medical Ethics. This new edition represents the culmination of an eight-year effort to bring the guidelines in line with contemporary medical policies, practices, and technologies. The book is currently available in both print and digital editions from the AMA’s website.

The foundational resource for physicians, students, and other medical professionals, the Code of Medical Ethics was first released in 1847. It has been the bedrock ethics publication in the field of medicine ever since. Throughout its 170 year existence, the book has been referenced by legal professionals, medical journals, and media organizations as the definitive guide for best medical practices.
