Professionalism is an important aspect of training of health professionals, given their roles, responsibility and accountability in patient care and patient safety. Being one of the graduate outcomes of health professions education as stipulated by accreditation and professional bodies, it is essential that it is addressed and assessed appropriately using a variety of teaching and learning activities and assessment tools in the curriculum. The one-day workshop will cover curriculum design and assessment of professionalism based on a framework developed for health professions programmes.


  • Design curriculum to incorporate professionalism
  • Assess professionalism
