Owen, D., Hill, F. and Stephens, C. (2009) Medical professionalism: more than fitness to practise The Academy Subject Centre for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine Newsletter, 1, (18), pp. 16-19.

Record type: Article


The General Medical Council (GMC) and the Medical Schools Council have produced guidance on professional behaviour for medical schools and students.
