The results of the semi-structured expert interview (Л/=12; 7 men, 5 women) are analyzed, the group of respondents consists of professors of Saratov SMU n. a. Razumovsky; respondents' general experience in practical medicine and education is more than 20 years; experts' age is 54-69 years. The interviewed experts specialize in surgery, traumatology and orthopedics, therapy, endocrinology, cardiology, gastroenterology. Results. The key social determinants of a physician's reputation are highlighted on the basis of the analyzed contradictions between organization and control over everyday medical practice, values and meanings of medical education. The authors explain the origin of negative "markers" of social value of a physician's profession and significance of higher medical school to overcome them. Conclusion. It was revealed that there is a negative connotation and inconsistency between formed in the period of study and real ideas about physician's professional role, as well as requirements for a modern specialist in the field of medicine.
