This interactive workshop will provide practical tools to address professionalism lapses as they occur in the clinical and classroom setting and to support a culture of professionalism. A systems framework for professionalism will be presented along with exploration of the factors leading to unprofessional behavior and barriers to intervening in the moment. Seven competencies for building professionalism resilience will be discussed. Participants will practice interventions before, during and after a lapse using vignettes and their own cases. Strategies will be identified to support a culture of professionalism.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

Apply a system‐based framework for understanding the causes and impact of unprofessional behavior.
Reflect on the factors to consider when responding to unprofessional behavior in the clinical learning environment.
Identify strategies to support a culture of professionalism (before, during and after) as a faculty member.
Develop a personalized set of strategies and responses to address unprofessional behavior more effectively.
