Lancaster Medical School Professionalism Values Statement

Strive to be the best doctor you can be, competent in your knowledge and clinical skills, nonetheless aware of your limits.  Always make the care and safety of your patients your first concern, communicate with them, empathise with them and show them compassion and dignity. You must work collaboratively with colleagues and treat them with courtesy and respect. Be honest and worthy of the trust patients hold in you and the trust society holds in your profession.
