Overview

In their desire to improve medical professionalism within the world of academic medicine, editors Delese Wear and Janet Bickel have assembled thirteen thought-provoking essays that elucidate the many facets of teaching, valuing, and maintaining medical professionalism in the middle of the myriad challenges facing medicine at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
     The collection traces how the values of altruism and service influence not only mission statements and admission policies but also the content of medical school ethics courses, student-led task forces, and mentoring programs, along with larger environmental  issues in medical schools and the communities they serve.
