This chapter describes how medical educators can use measures of moral reasoning and professional identity formation to provide students with a diagnostic assessment of strengths and shortcomings in their understanding of the ethical and moral dimensions of professionalism. In addition to providing examples of programs designed to address an event for an individual or group (e.g., cheating, subpar behavior in practice), the authors highlight strategies they have found effective in therapeutic interactions with students who present particular challenges.
