Module Abstract

Professionalism is important to enable trustworthy and sustainable relationships, especially when working with vulnerable populations such as refugees and the elderly.

By working through this module, you will become familiar with professionalism and the challenges within humanitarian and resource limited settings. While students may crave the freedom of working in developing countries, they must first appreciate the importance of their role as medical ambassador.

We encourage you to explore this competency by reading our case scenarios, watching videos and participating in an interactive activity highlighting key points.
