A Schematic Representation of the Professional Identity Formation and Socialization of Medical Students and Residents

Abstract: Recent calls to focus on identity formation in medicine propose that educators establish as a goal of medical education the support and guidance of students and residents as they develop their professional identity. Those entering medical school arrive with a personal identity formed since birth. As they proceed through the educational continuum, they successively develop the identity of a medical student, a resident, and a physician. Each individual's journey from layperson to skilled professional is unique a… Show more

“…Participation in this ‘community of practice’ [10] fosters a dynamic student identity that evolves over the years. This identity is influenced by the cognitive input of explicit teaching practices, but even more by each individual’s largely unconscious internalizations of the behaviors, language, and conceptions of knowledge and quality inherent in medical teaching, clinical practice, and the informal aspects of academic and student environments [3,8,1113]. The evolving medical student identity is the stem from which develops the future physicians’ full-fledged professional identity, capability and outlook, embodying the tacit norms of physicianship [14,15], of good and right medical actions [16,17], of what it means to be ‘a real doctor’ [18,19].…”
