Health Minister: Doctors must be professional, competent in ethics

Minister for Health Gan Kim Yong. -- ST PHOTO: ALPHONSUS CHERN By Fiona Low Doctors must be taught more than just how to make medical diagnoses and administer treatments. They also have to be competent in professionalism and ethics, said Minister for Health Gan Kim Yong. Speaking at the twice-yearly Physician's Pledge Affirmation Ceremony on Saturday, he noted that the residency programme for doctors here incorporates professionalism as a core competency for training and assessment. 'The challenge arises when your personal interests and the patients' are not aligned,' he said. 'When that happens, patients will need to rely on your sense of professionalism, that you will do the right thing in their best interests,' he added.
