MEDICAL PROFESSIONALISM AND THE SUCCESS IN MEDICAL SCHOOL, A PRIMER FOR NEW MEDICAL STUDENTS
Traditionally, doctors are one of the most respected professionals and they are considered “Messiah” for centuries. But recently, there is a lot of negative impression in the media about doctors who are blamed to be neither competent nor good humans and titles like “Qatal” and Greedy etc. are used leading to deterioration of the image of doctors in the society. Apart from other reasons of this negative image, many believe that lack of professionalism among the doctors is the key issue and therefore, the solution lies in cultivating the values of professionalism among medical students from the day one of their medical school.
