Abstract

Professionalism among health care practitioners is a critical value. This study aimed to determine the acceptable level of professional conduct from the perspective of undergraduate Health Sciences students of UiTM Puncak Alam and compare the difference of perspectives between the years of study. From 320 participants, the results showed the low level of acceptance towards poor scenarios and significant differences in perspectives between the year of study in scenarios 2,3 and 6; forging experimental results(χ²=18.66,p<0.01); intellectual dishonesty(χ2=11.11,p=0.01) and forging classmate's signature(χ2=11.18,p=0.01). The findings provided faculty's administrators with an acceptable level of professional conduct from the perspective of their students.

Keywords: Professionalism, professional conduct, perspective, Health Sciences students
