Symposium on Professional Identity Development | 29.08.24 | CHUV



Health-professions education is as much about the development of a professional identity as it is about knowledge learning (L. Monrouxe).  

Professional Identity Development (PID) is a continuous and dynamic process that evolves over time, in which clinical and non-clinical experiences, expectations and environmental factors merge with individual values, beliefs and obligations. While PID has been associated with career success, a mismatch between personal orientations and expectations towards the profession has been associated with anxiety, frustration, and feelings of inadequacy. PID requires one to undertake a socialisation journey, in which healthcare education plays a role in cultivating a supportive learning environment. 

But finally, what is professional identity and how can we concretely support its development in our trainees ? 

We will have the opportunity to listen to and exchange with international and national academic leaders and specialists in the field, but also to hear the first-hand experience of students.

The program will feature oral presentations, and a round table discussion.
