The domain of personal and professional development was constructed as a new domain of competency on the basis of the Association of Pediatric Program Directors' (APPD) input during an ethnographic inquiry1 at the 2009 fall APPD meeting. This new domain encompasses both individual aspects of professional formation, characterized as the development of professional values, actions and aspirations,2 as well as overarching concepts of global professional attributes, such as trustworthiness. In a brief glance at the 8 competencies within this new domain, one will observe that these new areas stand on their own as important competencies.
