“CNOM” stands for Conseil National de l'Ordre des Médecins (French National Medical Council). Their motto is: “Being at the service of the doctors in the interest of patients". As an organism governed by private law entrusted with a public service mission, the CNOM defends the honor and the independence of the medical profession it represents to the
French society (public authorities, citizens...). It is the French institution which gathers and
federates all physicians.
