Knowledge of and Attitudes toward Medical Professionalism among Students and Junior Doctors in Trinidad and Tobago

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/Wimj.2013.214
Pages: 
138–44
Synopsis: 
Medical students and junior doctors demonstrated limited knowledge about medical professionalism but good attitudes toward this trait; however, attitude scores declined over time. This may signal receptivity toward more formal training within this area.

ABSTRACT

Background: The past decade has seen an increasing focus on professionalism within the medical school curriculum. This reflects the growing demand for doctors who demonstrate empathy and uphold the altruistic values of the Hippocratic Oath.  Such is often challenged by the resource-constrained environments of developing nations requiring uniquely tailored interventions within these regions.
