Since the early 90's a course called Professional Development (PD) runs through all terms of Medical School in Umeå. The course has continuously been reformed on the basis of course evaluations. Today there is a well-reasoned progression in the curricula to synthesize students' actual knowledge level, skills, and attitudes into professionalism. The teaching items and the pedagogical methods in PU all aim to develop the students' reflective stance, gender awareness, empathy, ethical reasoning and consultations skills. Taking communication as an example: During the first terms, theories and small-group training sessions are introduced. By clinical courses, students video-tape their own consultations and get structured feedback in tutor-guided groups. The last terms, role plays on difficult clinical situations are staged for training, but also to challenge attitudes on for instance ethnicity and sexuality. Finally, insights in communication theories and their applicability are examined in a written video case exam.
