Abstract

Objective: Assessing professional attitudes and behaviors as components of professionalism among residents
at the Suez Canal University Hospital (SCUH).
Methodology: The study was a descriptive, cross sectional study, included residents at the Suez Canal
University Hospital. A validated questionnaire to assess the professionalism components (attitude and behavior) was
used. The first part of this questionnaire is a peer assessment through the Scale to Measure Professional Attitudes
and Behaviors in Medical Education. The second part is Self-assessment questions from UMKC-SOM Climate of
Professionalism Survey (University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine). It contains 10 questions about
professional behavior rated (mostly-often-sometimes-rarely).
Results: residents are capable of consistently performing professionally across the domains of professionalism.
However, variations across items suggest that professionalism is multifaceted, and the distribution of responses
highlights some specific items where residents’ performance could be improved.
Conclusion: Assessment of self and peer reported competences among residents at Suez Canal University
Hospital showed that residents are capable of consistently performing professionally across the domains of
professionalism. However, variations across items suggest that professionalism is multifaceted, and the Excellence
subscale in a need for improvement.
