Some people have linked these words to professionalism...


  • Honesty

  • Altruism

  • Respect

  • Accountability

  • Integrity

  • Responsibility

  • Compassion

  • Dedication

  • Empathy

  • Self-Improvement

Professionalism can be many things, but it must be consistent - how we behave with our classmates and colleagues is no less important than how we present ourselves to patients. Students have a right to expect to be treated with respect by their professors, preceptors and others involved in their education.
