Professional Identity and Professionalism Assessment in Three Medical Schools in Latin America


To assess the development of professional identity and professionalism in medical students based on the use of an app to systematize experiences in a virtual portfolio.

The project will be conducted in three Schools of Medicine: Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia), and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Chile). It will involve the participation of 110 students per institution in the initial clinical phase for a period of one year.

Upon completion of the project, qualitative and quantitative assessments of the professional identity of medical students in the three institutions should be available, in addition to a profile of critical factors of professional identity recognized by the students and an assessment of behaviors related to professionalism.
