Commemorating Virtual Mentor's First 2 Years

The online monthly journal Virtual Mentor was created by the AMA's Ethics Standards Group more than 2 years ago with the aim of contributing to positive changes in medicine's ethical and professional landscape. Since September 1999, VM's editors and contributors have published articles meant to catalyze interest, invite discussion, and broaden understanding among our readers about the challenges that confront the healing profession. We built it, and, to our delight, students and teachers have come in increasing numbers to the Virtual Mentor.

This month's Virtual Mentor is part 1 of a 2-part commemorative issue celebrating the best of the Virtual Mentor. The editors have selected and solicited pieces that highlight 5 pressing challenges the profession faces in shaping medicine's future.
