Description

This resource is a learning module developed for first-year residents to gain exposure to the tenets of professionalism, both in the general practice of medicine and within their own specialty. By completion of this module, each resident will have articulated his or her personal standards of professional behavior and have made a written commitment to strive for those standards in everyday clinical situations.

To evaluate the effectiveness of this module, a brief survey was distributed to current and former residents who had completed the module. The survey presented a series of 10 statements and asked participants to report their level of agreement with each statement on a five-point Likert scale. Thirteen of the 40 participants responded: four 2013 graduates, two 2014 graduates, one CA-3 resident, two CA-2 residents, and four CA-1 residents.
