Abstract

Traditional medical oaths and codes portray the ideal physician as devoted to the welfare of patients and to the pursuit of scientific knowledge. Although promoting excellence and compassion in the care of patients remains our highest priority, it is the pursuit of knowledge through study and research that has continuously renewed, strengthened, and advanced our field. Scholarly activities are critical to improving our patients’ outcomes, to our individual development, and to the further advancement of our profession.
