The Department of the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins, the first department of its type in North America, is proud to introduce new online CME modules that provide a historical perspective on issues of relevance to clinical practice today.
In these self-paced modules, short videos and self-study questions designed by Hopkins faculty guide the learner through key topics using compelling examples and up-to-date analysis.

The concept of professionalism is at the heart of the social compact that grants physicians extraordinary privileges in the practice of medicine, including the right to self-regulate. The need to continuously re-evaluate the terms of this compact with one eye on the past and another on the future has been at the heart of a series of calls for a "new professionalism" in American medicine and the inclusion of medical professionalism as a key element in undergraduate and graduate medical education. Historical perspective can provide crucial insight into the social forces that guide the shaping and reshaping of the social compact that has defined and continues to define the medical profession.
This CME is intended to be of value to any physician practicing in any specialty or subspecialty in the United States. The topics addressed are general to the medical profession and are therefore valid across all aspects of the practice of medicine. More specifically, this CME activity will be of value to physicians interested in applying historical perspectives to the shifting basis of medical professionalism to further their understanding of the current issues affecting the structures of the medical practice today.
After participating in the activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
•Recognize the dynamic basis of professionalism in medical practice
•Compare and contrast the changing definition of medical professionalism in ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern medical practice
•Describe the different roles of education, licensing, and certification in the regulation of orthodox medical practice
•Identify the social, political, and economic forces that continue to shape the dynamic boundaries of the medical profession
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
