description Today, the medical profession enjoys high social and economic status by virtue of assured fees, self-promotion, and, of course, influence over life and death. Physicians control entry into their profession by setting educational and licensing requirements, and by regulating and disciplining professional behaviour with minimum interference from nonmedical bodies. The profession also protects itself by closely watching and limiting the activities of kindred societies. In these measures, physicians have generally enjoyed support from public and government agencies.
