Reviewer:Kristi J. Ferguson, PhD(University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine)
Description:This collection of chapters from leading experts in the field of teaching professionalism provides a strong theoretical foundation and illustrates components in a cohesive fashion.
Purpose:This book brings together the theory and practice of teaching professionalism. There is currently a burgeoning literature in this area, and it is very useful to have the important work compiled in a single book.
Audience:Those involved in teaching professionalism across the continuum of medical education are the intended audience.
Features:Four sections present the cognitive base, theory, principles, and case studies. These are supplemented by practical materials that can be used for teaching purposes. Uniquely, the book includes suggestions about how to address faculty development concerns in the area of professionalism, an area that has not received a lot of attention.
Assessment:I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in teaching about professionalism. It will be especially useful to those who teach across the continuum of medical education.
