- Identify components of the social contract between the profession and society.
- Recognize consequences of a profession being perceived to violate the social contract.
- Discover that conflict of interest cannot be determined by the professional with relationships of concern, but only by the public, including learners and patients.
- Examine how professional associations in the US have formed coalitions to develop and implement solutions to professional challenges, including holding the profession accountable for fulfilling its contract with society.
Presented by Norman B. Kahn, Jr, MD
Norman Kahn, MD, CPE is a retired family physician, currently (2022) focusing on grandparenting and his continuing personal spiritual journey. He serves as a member of the Kansas Academy of Family Physician’s Governmental Advocacy Committee, which has prioritized the expansion of Medicaid. He has completed a Leadership Fellowship sponsored by the Kansas Leadership Center. He teaches Health System Science and Leadership to graduating family medicine residents. Dr. Kahn serves as a member of the Advisory Committee on Professionalism and Value of the American Board of Family Medicine.
Dr. Kahn completed ten years as CEO of the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), an organization of 45 specialty societies in medicine and surgery representing over 800,000 physicians in the US. Under Dr. Kahn’s leadership, CMSS focused on professionalism (altruism – putting the needs of patients first, self-regulation and transparency) and performance improvement in practice. He served for nine years as Convener of the Conjoint Committee on Continuing Education, a coalition of 28 organizations in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physician assistants, social work and dentistry, which addressed the opioid epidemic through the continuing education of health professionals.
Prior to CMSS, Dr. Kahn spent sixteen years on the senior staff of the American Academy of Family Physicians, supervising the Academy’s role in the undergraduate, graduate and continuing education of family physicians, as well as the AAFP’s science and public health policy. Dr. Kahn came to the AAFP from the University of California, Davis, where he was Program Director in Family Medicine, Director of the UC Davis Network of mostly rural family medicine residencies in northern California, and Assistant Dean for the California Area Health Education Center and AIDS Education and Training Center.
After graduating from the University of Kansas School of Medicine and the family medicine residency program at San Francisco General Hospital/UCSF, Dr. Kahn spent nine years in the full-scope rural practice of family medicine in Hughson, CA (pop 2940). During the last six of those years, he directed the family medicine residency program in Modesto, CA. He was a US Public Health Service Primary Care Policy Fellow in 1991 and received his Certified Physician Executive credential from the American Association for Physician Leadership in 2016.
