Deprofessionalization or reprofessionalization: a study comparing law and medicine


, : Deprofessionalization or reprofessionalization: a study comparing law and medicine. Revista Da Associacao Medica Brasileira 40(3): 211-215

The author discusses and compares the transformations in the profession of lawyers in the United States of America and the doctors in Brazil according to a theoretical analysis based upon the classical theory of the Sociology of the Professions. The discussion about the deprofessionalization of Medicine is conducted along some of the characteristics outlined by the theory. The author concludes that the challenge that faces medicine is a kind of re-organization that will change necessarily the profession as we know it today, but this change will not affect the professional autonomy or any other of its essential characteristics.
