Emotional Intelligence and Medical Professionalism
Zayapragassarazan, Z.; Kumar, Santosh
Online Submission, NTTC Bulletin v18 n2 p3-4 2011
Studies have shown that IQ alone does not contribute to the professional success of medical professionals. Professionals who are trained to be clinically competent, but have inadequate social skills for practice have proved to be less successful in their profession. Emotional intelligence (EI), which has already proved to be a key attribute for success in the corporate sectors, has now gained momentum in the field of education in general and medical education in particular. This article discusses the importance of emotional intelligence as part of medical training because by developing the emotional intelligence, medical students and professionals can become more productive and successful in what they do, and help others to become more productive and successful too.
