Abstract

Professionalism is the new buzz word in medical education and practice. The MCI Revised Graduate Medical Education Regulations 2017 emphasize the role of Indian Medical Graduate as a professional who is ethical, responsive, caring, compassionate, committed to excellence and accountable to patients, profession and community at large. A plan is underway to introduce Attitude Ethics and Communication (AETCOM) modules as a part and parcel of MBBS curriculum. However, how to translate this laudable plan in to action requires further deliberations.
The purpose of this article is to identify a comprehensive strategy for assessing professionalism. Teaching and assessment of professionalism are quite challenging. A combination of both objective and subjective tools is needed for giving credibility to the assessment. Continuous documentation and internal assessment coupled with portfolio approach can play a key role in assessment of these competencies.

Keywords: Professionalism, Ethics, Assessment.
