2019 Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society Professionalism Award
Recognizing best practices in medical professionalism education, the 2019 Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society Professionalism Award has been awarded to Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University for their Professional Identity Formation curriculum.
Professional socialization and the development of reflective capacity are critical elements that shape a medical student’s professional identity with a goal to develop physicians who can bring their “whole person to provide whole person care.” The professional identity of an excellent doctor embraces empathy, mindful attention to patient care, integrity, self-awareness, teamwork, beneficence, respect, and equal regard for all, as well as an eagerness to learn, resilience, and attention to self-care. Personal Identity Formation is a lifelong endeavor achieved through critical reflection and exposures to role models who “pass the torch” from generation to generation.
The central aim of Renaissance School of Medicine’s Personal Identity Formation curriculum is to integrate evidence-based approaches to enhance personal identity formation among trainees and faculty across the medical education continuum. In a time of increasing burnout among physicians and trainees, purposeful integration of such approaches into an institution’s learning processes helps to enhance resilience and a sense of belonging and well-being within a community of practice.
