Curriculum Development

 The UPR AOA Chapter undertook as
  their special project the development of
  a Professionalism Curriculum
 The overall goal of the curriculum is to
  introduce the basic aspects of
  professionalism throughout the four
  years of medical school and influence
  students’ attitudes and behaviors
Phase I: 2003-2004

 First Year Medical Students (Class of
  2007) during the Introduction to Clinical
  Skills Course
 Teaching Strategies:
    Anonymous survey based on vignettes of
     common ethical issues
    Grand Round: Charter on Medical
       Professionalism, Film “The Choice is
       Yours”, reflection and discussion period
      Small group discussions based on
       vignettes illustrating various principles of
       professional conduct
      Repetition of initial survey
 Evaluation Strategies:
     Comparison of anonymous survey results
     Faculty evaluation of the small group
      discussions
     Student evaluation of the teaching
      strategies
 Results of Phase I:
     Students found the curriculum appropriate
      and necessary
     Faculty found the students interested,
      motivated and well informed
 Changes since 2003:
     Introductory lecture on Professionalism
     Evaluation of professional attitudes and
      behavior during clinical activities
Phase II: 2004-2005

 Second year medical students (class of
  2007) during the Integration Seminar
  Workshop Series
 Teaching Strategies:
     PBL case work on Conflicts of Interest or
      ethical issues
     Two sessions for discussion

 Results
      Agreement by students on the need to
       cover this subject in the curriculum
      Evaluated as excellent teaching strategies
       by students
      Faculty reports lively and in-depth
       participation from the students
Phase III: 2005-2006

 Third year medical students (Class of
  2007) during the Internal Medicine
  Clerkship
 Teaching Strategies:
     Professionalism Workshop
        Live interview of 3 patients by an attending
         physician
        Small group discussion of the interviews with
         key questions to guide the discussion
        Development of a summary of aspects
         discussed with a list of professionalism issues
         and recommendations on how to manage the
         issues
 Evaluation Strategies
     Student evaluation of the exercises
        Only one group has evaluated the activity up
         to now
        Students evaluated the activity as excellent

     Faculty evaluation of the exercises
     Evaluation of professional attitudes
      incorporated into the student’s evaluations
        Case   presentation, rounds, etc
Faculty Development

Activities for faculty development in
  teaching and modeling professionalism
  are being developed
 Faculty is being trained to teach
  professionalism using a PBL approach
  and a small group session approach
Conclusions

 A curriculum on professionalism can be
  introduced within the medical school
  curriculum
 A step-wise manner and ownership by a
  course or clerkship seems to help in the
  implementation process
 Continuum through the four years
  reinforces the objectives
Next……

 Development of fourth year medical
  students activities
 Exit evaluation of the project
 We hope these interventions will result in
  enhanced awareness and compliance
  with professional behavior.
