Survey of Unprofessional Behavior

Posted by medliorator on September 12, 2008

This study assessed participation in and perceptions of unprofessional behaviors among entering medicine interns at the University of Chicago Medical Center and 2 independent residency programs affiliated with Northwestern University at the time of the survey

110 of 118 interns (93.2%) completed the survey… Making fun of patients to colleagues, falsifying medical records, and reporting patient information as normal when uncertain of the true results were perceived as most unprofessional (lowest Likert score) but were reported in 17%, 13%, and 10% of respondents, respectively

Research has shown that those with poor ratings on professional behavior early in their careers are at greater risk of disciplinary action later on.
