Register here and join the WPA Southern Chapter for a complimentary Dinner & Discussion on The Goldwater Rule. Facilitated by Jeff Marcus, MD and Ken Robbins, MD, the event promises to be an interesting convergence of psychiatry, ethics, and politics. 

The Goldwater Rule: "On occasion psychiatrists are asked for an opinion about an individual who is in the light of public attention or who has disclosed information about himself/herself through public media. In such circumstances, a psychiatrist may share with the public his or her expertise about psychiatric issues in general. However, it is unethical for a psychiatrist to offer a professional opinion unless he or she has conducted an examination and has been granted proper authorization for such a statement.” (Principles of Medical Ethics with Annotations Especially Applicable to Psychiatry).
