Professional Integrity

Updated: Oct 2, 2021

Professional competence is the habitual and judicious use of communication, knowledge, technical skills, clinical reasoning, emotions, values, and reflection in daily practice for the benefit of the individual and community being served. – Epstein and Hundert
Honesty and Integrity are the foundation for building an ethically minded resident who adheres to higher standards. By instilling strong foundations and by creating a culture of honesty and integrity, residents will do the right thing during times of supervision and when no one is watching.

Professionalism is one of the core competencies and also relates to medical knowledge, and patient care.
