Faculty Professionalism

Professionalism is a core value and expectation of all Duke School of Medicine faculty. As a community, each of us affirms and animates this value through our daily interactions with each other, our learners, our team members, our trainees, our patients, and the public. While professional behavior is the overwhelming norm, academic medicine is a highly complex, high-stakes work environment in which episodes that test the boundaries of professionalism can occur. This page will be developed as a hub for connecting faculty with resources to sustain a professional environment. It is a growing resource, and new content will be continuously added.

For questions about the School of Medicine Faculty Professionalism Initiative, contact Vice Dean for Faculty Mara Becker, MD, MSCE, mara.becker@duke.edu.
