The annual Frank C. Wilson Professionalism Lecture features a lunchtime workshop and an evening lecture. This event is made possible through a generous donation from Dr. Frank C. Wilson to promote discussion surrounding professionalism in the context of medical education.

This year’s keynote was Lisa Strano-Paul, MD, FACP, Professor of Clinical Medicine at Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. Dr. Strano-Paul is the Assistant Dean for Clinical Education for the School of Medicine and Course Director of the Primary Care Clerkship.  Her educational focus has been on Professional Identity Formation throughout the medical school curriculum, and she has experience developing curricular innovations that focus on enhancing learners’ professionalism and interprofessional team skills in order to improve patient care.

Dr. Strano-Paul led sessions titled, “Conversations about Professionalism” and “Professionalism & Professional Identity Formation at RSOM (Renaissance School of Medicine)” respectively. Attended by over 80 faculty members, Dr. Strano-Paul facilitated productive discussions, one of which included examples from the Willowbrook Hepatitis Experiments and relevant case studies from her experience in geriatric medicine.

This annual event is one of many sponsored by the Academy of Educators (AOE) at the UNC School of Medicine. To stay informed about future events or learn more about AOE, see our website or email aoe@med.unc.edu.
