Medical professionalism and ethics of medical information dissemination, what is permitted and what is not. Grey areas abound but care must be taken to ensure that the physician does not run foul of the Code of Professional Conduct of the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC), although some of the restrictions may be modified and relaxed over the next few months. Advertising in discount sites are prohibited as this is usually tantamount to fee-splitting frowned upon by almost all medical boards. Gross infringement of these guidelines might lead to MMC sanctions which include suspension or removal of rights to practice. Different nation's medical boards have different constrictions of medical advertisement, some of these are compared with our own local MMC.
