'The book is readable and well laid out although it is written from an academic perspective. It is, therefore, perhaps of most use to course designers, teaching leads, trainers and other medical educators who are grappling with these issues.' The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist online
"This book brings together the theory and practice of teaching professionalism. There is currently a burgeoning literature in this area, and it is very useful to have the important work compiled in a single book...Four sections present the cognitive base, theory, principles, and case studies. These are supplemented by practical materials that can be used for teaching purposes. Uniquely, the book includes suggestions about how to address faculty development concerns in the area of professionalism, an area that has not received a lot of attention...I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in teaching about professionalism. It will be especially useful to those who teach across the continuum of medical education." --Doody's Review Service
