Priorities for Professionalism: What do surgeons think?
Professionalism underpins the commitment made between a profession and society. This social contract balances the benefit to a profession of a monopoly over the use of its knowledge base, it’s right to considerable autonomy of practice, and the privilege of self-regulation with responsibilities and accountabilities to the community.
Medical practitioners have embraced professionalism over the millennia, from the Hippocratic Oath1 to the 19th century2 and the present day. Professionalism has recently been highlighted3, but there have been concerns that not all its components are viewed as important4,5 or are reflected appropriately in surgical training endeavours.
