Abstract

The practice of hand surgery is bound by the need for each of us to maintain our profession's high standards by fulfilling our peers’ and society's expectations regarding ethical and professional behavior. Our profession is self-regulated by local, state, and national organizations, which provide expectations and standards for practice. This manuscript reviews the resources available from such organizations to foster standards of practice.
