About the Authors
  • Until recently professionalism was transmitted by respected role models, a method that depended heavily on the presence of a homogeneous society sharing values. This is no longer true, and medical schools and postgraduate training programs in the developed world are now actively teaching professionalism to students and trainees. In addition, licensing and certifying bodies are attempting to assess the professionalism of practicing physicians on an ongoing basis. This is the only book available to provide guidance to those designing and implementing programs on teaching professionalism. It outlines the cognitive base of professionalism, provides a theoretical basis for teaching the subject, gives general principles for establishing programs at various levels (undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing professional development), and documents the experience of institutions who are leaders in the field. Teaching aids that have been used successfully by contributors are included as an appendix and are available in downloadable form on our website.

    • Designed for medical educators looking for practical advice on how to develop and implement programs to teach professionalism
    • Documents the experience and advice of experts in the field
    • Contains appendices with teaching materials (also available in downloadable format on our website)

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book brings together the theory and practice of teaching professionalism. There is currently a burgeoning literature in this area, and it is very useful to have the important work compiled in a single book...Four sections present the cognitive base, theory, principles, and case studies. These are supplemented by practical materials that can be used for teaching purposes. Uniquely, the book includes suggestions about how to address faculty development concerns in the area of professionalism, an area that has not received a lot of attention...I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in teaching about professionalism. It will be especially useful to those who teach across the continuum of medical education."
