    Abstract

    This short sociological study discusses the changing status of doctors, in regard to both non-medical administrators and the public. Though based on observations in Finland I also see similar trends in other countries, trends which are associated with rapid social change in the West generally. These developments will lead to changes in the esteem in which a community holds its doctors.
