Declaration of Professionalism
As a medical student, I recognize that I am now a member of the medical community. As such, I accept responsibility for my conduct, and expect the same of my colleagues. I will demonstrate the highest standards of professional behaviour in academic and clinical settings, as guided by the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine’s core values of respect, collaboration, altruism, compassion, empathy, honesty, integrity, excellence, wellness, responsibility, accountability, equity, confidentiality, dedication and self-improvement. I make this declaration as part of my commitment towards the health and well-being of patients, society, my colleagues in the medical profession and myself.
