JGIM paper selected for ABIM Foundation Professionalism Article Prize
April 23, 2016
On April 19, 2016, the ABIM Foundation announced recipients of the sixth annual John A. Benson Jr., MD Professionalism Article Prize. The winning articles explored pressing professionalism challenges facing physicians, including the relationship between physician satisfaction, well-being and quality of care, and how remediation approaches can be designed to foster professionalism behaviors.
One of the three selected articles was the JGIM paper by Bierer et al from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine published in the July 2015 issue. The ABIM Foundation press release stated,
"Published in the July 2015 issue of the Journal of General Internal Medicine, this article explores opportunities for medical students to play a leadership role in developing their own remediation models to address professionalism lapses. The authors question traditional faculty-driven remediation models that place students in a passive role, and posit that adopting a learner-driven approach helps students take full responsibility for their actions and provides students opportunities for additional learning and growth."
The article, "Time to Loosen the Apron Strings: Cohort-based Evaluation of a Learner-driven Remediation Model at One Medical School" by S. Beth Bierer, Elaine F. Dannefer and John E. Tetzlaff is available via Springer Link.
