Professional and Moral Development in Medical Students: The Ethics of Caring for PatientsTrans Amer Clin Clim Assoc (1998)
AbstractThe young physician-in-training faces arduous tasks. Knowledge must be absorbed, and skills must be mastered. But, becoming a physician is a moral as well as an intellectual task. The attitudes and values that a young physician adopts will determine the way he or she practices, and be equally as important as intellectual and technical proficiency. Physicians-in-training are young adults. They have emerged from adolescence into adulthood, hopefully with a firm image of themselves and a self-awareness of their values and inner feelings.
