Abstract
CONCLUSIONS: Residency WCC formally marks the transition from medical student to that of the physician. Designed to support new residents’ professional identity development by highlighting the history, ideals and values of their chosen specialty. Unanticipated outcome: Reaffirms faculty physicians’specialty choice, WCC elements change over time to reflect the evolving role of family physicians and the needs of the residency program, Future study is needed on effects of the WCC longitudinally on curriculum, residents’ and faculty physicians’ professional identity development, and role (if any) of age, gender, and ethnicity.
