This collection of essays provides educators in medicine and the health sciences an illuminating and challenging introduction to professionalism. The book takes a practical approach toward this topic, looking at what professionalism means, for the individual physician's relationship to his or her patients, to the medical profession as a whole, and to society at large. Written by leading scholars and thinkers in the area of professionalism in medicine, contributors provide a well-rounded analysis of this important topic. Although the intended audience is primarily physicians, medical students and residents, the book is a suitable primer for pre-professional health care students as well.
