AbstractThis article discusses the importance of the professional argument by using it to resolve the so-called problem of dual loyalties for military physicians. The author that when a doctor is faced with asking what she should do when she owes loyalty both to her employer (the military) and to her profession, that these loyalty seems to clash in a systematic way, she should do what her profession requires-which is all the military asks of her. There is actually no problem of dual loyalties, only a misunderstanding of what the military asks of a military physician.
