The article suggests that the causal link between scope of practice monopolies and migration of health care workers should be examined. It argues that the policies of the Federation of Boards of Medical Examiners and the American Medical Association contribute to the degradation of constitutional rights of U.S. citizens to autonomy in relation to health care. A model code setting up a voluntary self-regulation scheme for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioners is presented.
