Council on Ethical & Judicial Affairs (CEJA) Reports
Reports by the Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs (CEJA) interpret the AMA Code of Medical Ethics to provide practical ethics guidance on timely topics for physicians, residents, medical students and others in health care.
When the AMA House of Delegates adopts the recommendations of a CEJA report they become Opinions in the Code of Medical Ethics. The body of the report, which sets out CEJA’s ethics analysis, is archived and remains available as a resource to help users apply guidance.
Council on Ethical & Judicial Affairs reports may not be reproduced without express written permission.
