Professionalism in Surgery: Challenges and Choices - 2nd Edition (DVD)
Watch a demo of the program HERE.
This second edition of "Professionalism in
Surgery: Challenges and Choices" presents 12 new vignettes in addition to the
original 12 vignettes, the American College of Surgeons "Code of Professional
Conduct," and "Medical Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician
Charter." The 24 lively vignettes depict realistic dilemmas that surgeons face
in everyday practice, present possible courses of action, and highlight the
principles of professionalism underlying various actions. New vignettes include
titles such as "Dropped Pass," "Industry Temptations," "Molecular Mischief," and
"Expert Excesses." The first edition met with wide acclaim for teaching
purposes, whether used with small groups of residents or for Grand Rounds with
practicing surgeons. The engaging and sometimes humorous vignettes always prompt
stimulating and productive discussions. The DVD program, which offers 7.5 AMA
PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, is also an extremely valuable resource for individuals
pursuing additional understanding of the many facets of professionalism and may
be helpful for meeting requirements for Maintenance of Certification and
Maintenance of Licensure.
