Hospitalists ID Unprofessional Physician Behaviors
Study coauthor Vineet M. Arora, MD, from the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago, says there is growing concern about the discrepancy between what is taught about professionalism in formal medical education and what is seen on the ward. She says government regulatory agencies are also pressing medical schools to evaluate their learning environments and the impact on professionalism.
"We had been doing some work about professionalism among students and residents. There is a lot of literature in those areas that the learning environment in academic medical centers may not be as positive at all times as it should be. We often heard from student residents that we should expand our work to include faculty to better understand role models in the learning environments," Arora told HealthLeaders Media.
"We were reassured that the numbers for alarming behaviors were low. We had surveyed the same behaviors in medical students and residents previously. This is completing the arc to understand what role faculty play."
Arora says the survey's findings were used to build an intervention program video for behaviorally challenged hospitalists.
