Standing out with Professionalism: How do Students and Faculty of two different Medical Schools perceive it?
Background and Objectives: Medical professionalism is an essential aspect of medical education and practice worldwide. Our objective was to explore and compare the perception as recommended sanctions about professionalism lapses, using the â€œDundee Polyprofessionalism Inventory I: Academic Integrityâ€, among the faculty and the studentsâ€™ of two different medical schools in Saudi Arabia.
Methods: Respondents from the two medical schools in Saudi Arabia, recommended sanctions for the first time, absolute lapses in academic professionalism were determined by using the â€œDundee Polyprofessionalism Inventory 1: Academic Integrityâ€.
Results: On comparing the faculty and studentsâ€™ responses (from College of Medicine, King Saud University) with the published data (from another, unidentified medical school in Saudi Arabia) we found alignments in recommending sanctions for 14 (46.66%) behaviours among faculty and again concerning the11(36.66%) behaviours among the students of both cohorts.
Conclusion: The results can be used to emphasise on the improved teaching and learning strategies in undergraduate medical studentsâ€™ understanding of professionalism.
