Welcome to the lighthouse of medical journalism, The Medical Sentinel, the official, peer-review journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).
The Medical Sentinel is committed to publishing scholarly articles in defense of the practice of private medicine, the tenets and principles set forth in the Oath of Hippocrates, individually-based medical ethics, and the sanctity of the patient-doctor relationship.
The Medical Sentinel is dedicated to the pursuit of liberty, free markets, and integrity in medical research, particularly research impacting on current socioeconomic and political issues affecting public policy in general and health care in particular. Political correctness, dogmatism and orthodoxy will be challenged with logical reasoning, valid data, and the scientific method (when applicable) in the pursuit of free inquiry, the free exchange of ideas, and the eternal quest for truth.
We will strive to place The Medical Sentinel on an intellectual footing to counteract misinformation, correct errors of fact and logic in the medical literature, and to aptly defend patient-oriented, individual-based, free market medical care.
Sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
