  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Psychiatry

This event will provide a comparison between the UK and other cultures and how doctors view medical professionalism, with a particular focus on wellbeing.

The programme will investigate how UK and Japanese doctors view professionalism and how the values and perspectives of other cultures can contribute to wellbeing. It will discuss the needs and solutions for promoting wellbeing at various career stages from students and trainees to consultants and medical practitioners.

You will also hear the latest findings of the continuing cross-cultural study of professionalism and wellbeing, plus the issue of hidden cultural bias will be examined.

You will learn: 

  • How to recognise the importance of wellbeing in developing medical professionalism
  • Different cultural perspectives of professionalism and wellbeing
  • The meaning of resilience and whether this is a responsibility of individuals or the institutions in which they study and work
