Case Scenarios

There is an increasing awareness of and interest in medical professionalism in medical education and practice. Issues in medical professionalism are inherently complex, yet of vital importance to students. It is crucial that students receive adequate training in these issues.

Utilizing the CanMEDS core competencies, 24 case scenarios exploring situations where students have had inappropriate behaviours and breached one of the core competencies are presented and explored. For each competency, 2 case-scenarios relevant to students in pre-clinical years and 2 scenarios applicable to students in their clinical years are available.
