Code of Ethics

At, Dr. Joanny Liu’s Code of Ethics comes from two sources:

First from Hippocrates who said “Do NO harm.”  This is the most important promise that any physician AND medical worker can make to their clients and public at large.

Second from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) because I cannot deny how much being an engineer has shaped my life, for which I am VERY grateful:

All entrants into the profession are required to write an ethics exam as part of the certification process. I wrote mine in the early 1980s and was a practicing Professional Engineer for 24 years before leaving the field to study Traditional Chinese Medicine.


APEGA Code of Ethics

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall recognize that professional ethics is founded upon integrity, competence, dignity and devotion to service. This concept shall guide their conduct at all times.

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall, in their areas of practice, hold paramount the health, safety and welfare of the public and have regard for the environment.

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall undertake only work that they are competent to perform by virtue of their training and experience.

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall conduct themselves with integrity, honesty, fairness and objectivity in their professional activities.

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall comply with applicable statutes, regulations and bylaws in their professional practices.

Professional engineers and geoscientists shall uphold and enhance the honour, dignity and reputation of their professions and thus the ability of the professions to serve the public interest.
