Abstract

Background and purpose: Medical professional behavior includes the characteristics of devotion, integrity, compassion, good communication skills, respect, responsibility, excellence and leadership. Evaluation plays an important role in identifying the professionalism of people and training. Thus, this study was conducted to evaluate the professional behavior of clinical residents.Methods: In this descriptive study, 50 clinical attending physicians were randomly selected as the study population. Each attending physician completed assessment forms for two residents with whom they had rounds for more than one month. P-MEX was used for data collection and data analysis was done through descriptive method using one-sample t-test.Results: Based on the results, the professional behaviors of residents were as follows: 8.9% under the expected level, 57.4% at the expected level, 32.7% over the expected level and no residents were at an unacceptable level.Conclusions: The present study was conducted for the first time considering the fact that no professionalism assessment tool was provided for clinical departments. The study had useful results and some important steps can be taken in the future by localization of the P-MEX tool, adding items accepted by professionals and doing a 360-degree assessment.
