Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Professionalism has been defined in many ways across disciplines. Professionalism, both demonstrated by faculty and students, needs to be taught and assessed in academic institutions.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this poster is to inform faculty of the importance of professionalism by presenting its foundations, ways of teaching, and impact on student learning.

METHODOLOGY: A comprehensive literature review was performed.

RESULTS: Professionalism definitions vary between professions. Professionalism is not adequately taught to students, partly because faculty members are unaware of its importance.

CONCLUSIONS: Professionalism is closely linked to malpractice and can have both a positive and negative impact on a profession depending on how it is taught and perceived by the learner.
