(p.101) 9 Medical Education: Teaching Doctors to Be Trustworthy
The Trust Crisis in Healthcare

Jordan J. Cohen

Oxford University Press

Physician trustworthiness is the best protection against error-prone modern healthcare. This chapter discusses how medical education can nurture and sustain trustworthiness in future physicians using appropriate admissions criteria, explicit learning objectives, and rewards and sanctions for professional behaviors. It argues institutions should also be clear in articulating expectations, commitment, and values from students and faculty through an approach similar to the Compact Between Teachers and Learners of Medicine, which is a model compact designed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Other initiatives the AAMC is developing to improve education include the Institute for the Improvement of Medical Education and measures of professionalism for peer evaluation.
