Medical Professionalism

The American Board of Pediatrics endorses the Charter on Medical Professionalism, a product of the Medical Professionalism Project. This charter outlines the principles and responsibilities of medical professionalism and serves as a reminder to physicians that the interests of patients rank above those of the physician.

As part of the ABP's board certification process, professionalism is assessed during a resident's final evaluation of physician competencies. This demonstration of a commitment to carrying out professional responsibilities, adhering to ethical principles and being sensitive to diversity is also evaluated and reinforced as part of Part 1 of the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process.
