Medicine is troubled by many divisive forces, external as well as internal. Apparently irreconcilable differences can be adjudicated when men of good will, earnest intentions, and integrity try. Medicine's success in harnessing scientific knowledge has also produced scientific and social problems, the solutions to which have been prematurely promised by others, thus raising undue expectations. Medicine has singleness of purpose and dedication to maintain the highest quality in education, research, service, tradition, and ethics. To achieve these goals will take all our efforts, and the American College of Physicians has the potential to aid in this achievement. The College is well suited to assume this leadership role and responsibility and to participate in this challenging struggle.
