Abstract

Professionalism, quality, and safety have become essential components of pediatric otolaryngology. Professionalism, as defined by Osler, refers to the long tradition of physicians carrying out the noble cause of providing health care to patients and families. The importance of professionalism cannot be overstated and now is widely understood to be a core competency of every practicing physician. The attention to quality and safety is also a central tenet of current surgical practice. Quality is doing the right thing at the right time for the right persons. Safety is providing care to patients that is free from undue harm.
