Duties: To Themselves and Colleagues


Physicians should be prepared to provide to colleagues, and accept from colleagues, both formal and informal mentorship. Mentorship involves the sharing of knowledge, experience and ideals, and allows physicians the opportunity to obtain advice and support in their various physician roles. As mentors, physicians should lead by example.

Mentorship is also an informal mechanism for maintaining the high expectations and standards of the profession.
