A tall and high building is built on a strong foundation. Like a strong foundation, a strong set of ethical code will build the basis of a fulfilling lifelong practice.

We need to regularly reflect upon them and check them against our yardstick lest we deviate from them slowly by slowly.
- Patient beneficence
- Strong clinical foundation/evidence based practice
- Financial considerations
