Video: Commitment to Professional Responsibilities


A third year student on his surgical clerkship, sees a newly hospitalized patient with his resident. The patient had a history of inflammatory bowel disease and is now admitted with increased pain and diarrhea. The student observes the resident as he completes a cursory history and exam and then presents findings to the attending, many of which were fabricated.
