Professionalism Workshop, Dr. Edweana Robinson

The definition of professionalism is “the conduct or qualities that characterize or mark a profession of professional  person” (Merriam –Webster dictionary)

The Class of 2024 will learn more about the professionalism expected of  students while enrolled at KSUCPM, as well as the professionalism expected of those in the medical  profession.

Students will partner with faculty mentors who will spend the morning exploring professionalism. During the Professionalism Workshop, students will develop a professionalism oath which they will recite at the White Coat Ceremony to be held at a later date. This oath will guide the class of 2024’s conduct for the four years enrolled at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.
