Professionalism is important in nearly every job, but it matters more so in medicine than most since people are putting their health and sometimes their life in your hands. Maintaining a professional demeanor can be a bit of challenge since you don’t want to come across as too detached because it might seem like you do not care about your patients or their troubles. Ultimately a doctor has to find the right balance between professionalism and a reassuring bedside manner especially if they have to deliver bad news to a patient or their loved ones. A professional should always treat his patients and their family’s with courtesy and respect and should strive to answer any questions they might have to the best of their ability.
