The pressures and identity crisis afflicting medical professionals are competing with the vocational ideals that led many into the profession. So, how do we prepare and educate students and junior doctors for the realities of modern medicine?  And how do we support doctors to improve their practice and maintain professional satisfaction throughout their careers? Advancing Medical Professionalism, a new report from the Royal College of Physicians and the Oxford Healthcare Values Partnership (OHVP), argues that supporting doctors to develop their professional identities can be part of the answer. And that this will also help us address healthcare challenges such as the recruitment and retention of doctors, improving patient care, and managing increasingly complex health systems. This event will present Advancing Medical Professionalism and explore how to take forward the professionalism agenda.

Speakers include:

Professor Dame Jane Dacre, immediate past President, RCP

Dr Jude Tweedie, Research Fellow RCP and University College London

Professor Karen O’Brien, Head of the Humanities Division, Oxford University

Dr Claire Pulford, Deputy Director of Medical Education, Oxford University Hospitals
