CMDA's Position and Scientific Statements

CMDA's Ethics Committee has set forth CMDA’s official ethical position statements. Largely limited to bioethical issues, these statements are based on scientific, moral and biblical principles, and they are approved by the Board of Trustees and the House of Representatives.

We encourage our members to familiarize themselves with these positions in an effort to adopt the ethical tenets as defined by Hippocratic tradition within your work as a healthcare professional.
