It is common to get some irresponsive elements among students; it is a trend, which is usually associated with the environment and behavior that can be found in a Medical School. Indeed a number of currently leading medical professionals will tell three or four irresponsible encounters they had back in school, in fact they will narrate such incidence with a bit of laughter and sarcasm. You wonder how an experience so nasty and unethical could such a laughing matter; college is a place of many social and personal challenges. Expect all kind of irresponsibility like laziness, unreliable attending of clinic and inadequate following of patient care activities. These challenges become real problems when, an individual will carry them after medical school to real medical practicing.  These “justified” behaviors in College have borne a high percentage of unprofessional behaviors in the Medical field.  Currently unprofessional behaviors like inadequate following of medical care treatments and care, wrong and unfit diagnosis, laziness, lateness and improper conducts are shadowing the medical field. It is a shame that such field, which requires absolute responsibility, is filled with unethical and such irresponsible behaviors. However, looking back, it is a feeling that Medical Schools are responsible for the ethical behaviors of practicing medical practitioners.

Medical Schools have a duty of ensuring that they do not produce repulsive and irresponsible medical students.  It is reported that unprofessional behaviors of a student is related to the subsequent disciplinary. Irresponsible and unprofessional behaviors that have been noted include some percentages of diminished capacity to improve and poor relationships with other students, faculty and nurses, insecurity and anxiety. Clearly explaining that behaviors from college are subsequently noted in professional practice. All the medical school reported irresponsible and unethical cases that have been reported were also reported in the actual practicing medical institutions. Hence, unethical and irresponsible cases that are practiced in Medical School are actual done in Medical institutions. It then rests that the root of such practices are from Medical schools. Even if Medical institutions and prevalent regulatory institutions are doing much to control and put measures to reduce such practices, there is still more to be done. Medical Schools need to take the issue seriously and address it in a more logical way, (Maxine, 2005). They need to integrate ethical studies with medical studies to not only build a medical professional but also build a responsible and ethical individual. Also upon identification of such practices in students, more logical means should be developed in punishing the student so as to ensure that students who may arbor or likely to have them learn a lesson. It’s imperative that ethic behavior and professionalism can be taught and learned but then it is basic that such actions are carried for a long time hence sometimes learning may not help stabilize a person’s character. Hence sometimes use of formal codes and its more than just training.

Yes. The perception is that when individuals share a formal code they intend to work together well and associate in a much productive manner. Students or professionals who use formal codes have a better relationship and individuals who may turn irresponsible are identified easily in such instances. A medical practitioner who has a tendency of not providing adequate patient care services will be easily identified by a colleague. Thus, it could be easy to advice individual and seek procedural ways of ensuring that such behavior desists. Formal codes lead to formal relationships, which are avenues sharing and communication, and it is the foundation of medical practicing, (Maxine, 2005)
