One of the goals of educational programs is to effectively provide education and training that will prepare students and graduates for success in their respective disciplines.

Health care organizations in particular desire graduates who consistently exhibit attitudes and behaviors that reflect the values of their organization. One of the most desirable skills that prospective employers seek is professionalism.

So, what exactly is professionalism? How can you teach it? And how can it be evaluated?

This Magna Online Seminar addresses the need to teach and evaluate professionalism skills both in the didactic, as well as the clinical environments. You’ll learn various methods for teaching and evaluating professionalism, as well as potential consequences for educational programs and/or organizations who fail to address this issue effectively.

What are the learning goals?

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe why teaching professionalism is so important
  • Define professionalism within the health care context

Here’s what we’ll cover!

Why you don’t want to miss this!

Employers increasingly seek employees who exhibit high levels of professionalism and emotional intelligence. This presentation discusses how professionalism can be integrated into existing curricula, and provides strategies for teaching and evaluating professionalism skills.

Professionalism is essential to student/employee success. If professionalism skills are not taught and evaluated, then you either expect your student/employee to have them inherently, or you expect them to acquire these skills somewhere, somehow.

This seminar doesn’t leave this important issue to chance.

Professionalism can certainly be taught, but most importantly, it can also be evaluated. When done correctly and consistently, the evaluation process can be an effective tool to help employees, students, and employers identify the skills that may benefit the individual and employer. It can also be an effective tool for identifying focuses for improvement. This seminar walks you through what professionalism is and presents various methods for teaching and evaluating professionalism on campus and in the clinical environment. Register today!
