Abstract

This article explores the development of professionalism in paramedic programs of the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC), Canada. Professionalism is currently defined as a set of competencies that are embedded as a set of skills and knowledge to be mastered, then applied in simulations and a field practicum. In the second part of the article, professionalism is examined as a broader concept and suggestions are presented for fostering the development of professionalism in the current redevelopment of the JIBC's Advanced Care Paramedic program.
