Professionalism is a required competency for medical trainees. However, faculty may need a framework for thinking about the components of professionalism, tools to identify learners with challenges in this area, and strategies to help these learners succeed. In this workshop, we discuss the components of professionalism that we expect in medical trainees, as well as a framework for understanding and describing professionalism problems that we may encounter with our learners. Participants will practice an approach to identifying and assessing the struggling learner, share ideas for dealing with professionalism problems, and leave with a practical list of tips and references.
During this workshop, participants will:
Generate and discuss definitions of medical professionalism, and categories of unprofessional behavior
Learn an adaptation of the SOAP model for identifying, approaching and assessing learners with professionalism challenges
Practice these skills in a breakout session, using realistic educational scenarios.
Discuss available techniques, tools and resources for helping a learner struggling with professionalism.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Recognize categories of professionalism challenges in learners.
Apply the SOAP model to help further understand and assist learners in difficulty.
Demonstrate strategies for communicating about professionalism concerns with a learner.
Develop an initial approach to addressing professionalism issues in trainees.
