VACAREZZA Y, Ricardo. On the Control of Professional Ethics. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.11, pp.1303-1305. ISSN 0034-9887.

Professional colleages lost the ethical control of their members in 1980, when a free market economical model was implemented in Chile. Courts of justice have failed to accomplish this task. To recover such control, the Chilean Medical Association would need to modify its internal organization, separating its functions as a union from those required to control professional ethics. The health reform that is being set forth in the country, proposes a "new instance" for the control of professional ethics, within the Health Services and forming part of the Health Care Authority (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 1303-5).
