dc.description.abstract Medical students in South Africa are frequently confronted with mixed messages contributing to uncertainties and dilemmas in their clinical encounters when the gap between theoretical frameworks and the practical realities is illuminated. For instance, learning for and about health and human rights in a spiraling curriculum can be undermined by the recognition that violations can occur in the health system. This website aims to promote a transformative approach to professionalism in which learning can be facilitated by engaging with both the facilitating and hindering influences that characterize clinical practice in South Africa. Digital stories by positive role models offer a collection of reflective insights about Being a Doctor. Resources on probing professionalism can assist students in mediating possible challenging events in their clinical encounters as well as learning from South Africa’s past. The new Six Step Spiral for Critical Reflexivity (SSS4CR) is explained and made available for students and others to use and remix either off or online. en_ZA
