Professionalism in Medical Education

With the Physicians' Charter came a challenge to focus on professionalism in the training of physicians, resulting in several major medical education initiatives related to professionalism. Professionalism has been identified as a core competency which needs to be evaluated in students and residents. The Group on Educational Affairs (GEA) of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and many specialty boards have identified professionalism as a priority for their attention.
