  1. Great topic that we need to talk more about. Being professional earns our patient’s trust. Do we want people to feel confident in our ability to take care of them, or do we want them to be scared to death and just want to get to the hospital as fast as possible? Our initial education programs need ot indoctrinate students in professionalism and reinforce it in our organizations.
