Physicians are trained to assess, evaluate, prevent, treat and heal. As we graduate from medical school we recite the Hippocratic Oath subjecting ourselves to the premise of “Do No Harm”. From our childhood, we are reared with our family’s morals and values. These are then reinforced, modified, altered and challenged throughout our lives based on the life experiences and education we encounter. Sports, like most industries, brings about situations that can challenge one’s moral fiber. It is here where lines blur, jobs feel threatened and decisions are made that test the oath we recited as a nubile physician. Our discussion will examine how morals of young physicians with altruistic beliefs are put to the test by an ever-evolving and growing monster which thrives on intensity, notoriety, fame, the thrill of victory, the agony of the other teams defeat and the almighty dollar.
