The use of reflection as an educational tool is important to render professional competence
Professionalism can be difficult to teach and integrate in the clinical training of younger doctors. Making the professional competences visible in an educational context is a challenge for most clinical educators. This paper presents the use of reflection as an educational tool, where the use of narratives, literature and focused dialogues with a supervisor are relevant methods. These approaches make it possible to render the professional competences concrete and tangible in the supervision of professional identity development as well as in the ways of being a doctor.
