While the health system is proving to be very polluting, ecological concerns are becoming increasingly important among health professionals. How can the limitation of the ecological footprint be combined with the practice of liberal medicine? This qualitative study suggests several avenues: rethinking the construction of health infrastructures, reorganizing medical practices, promoting the concept of global health through the Internet or associations.
