Assessing professionalism as an essential academic outcome improves engagement between the medical school and clinical supervisors

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearchpeer-review


Professionalism in medical education has commonly been seen as an extension of the themes “Personal and Professional Development” or “Health Law and Ethics”. In many curricula these themes receive a small academic weight. The assessment of professional difficulties is primarily assessed as a behavioural concern with academic success being determined through performance in assignments and formal clinical and written examinations.
