Check out the latest articles on professionalism in medical schools and unnecessary care in this week’s Recommended Reading:
- In “Creating a Longitudinal Environment of Awareness: Teaching Professionalism Outside the Anatomy Laboratory,” a fourth-year medical student reflects on the opportunities to teach professionalism in basic science courses in medical school. He argues that while educators have developed professionalism curricula related to anatomy, there are missed opportunities to reflect on professionalism in other basic science courses.
- Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California assessed the impact of a workshop on the effects of online social media on medical students’ attitudes and their behaviors toward their use of social media. The authors found that the workshop increased awareness of students’ online professional reputation and increased their intention to edit and monitor their online presence.
- The authors of a Clinical Pediatrics article discussed the need to educate parents on appropriate use of medications that reduce fevers in children; the authors cite Choosing Wisely® as a “great example” of an educational initiative focused on reducing unnecessary care.
