On mentorship and collegiality

  • W Lichtenberg

Abstract

“A doctor shall show colleagues and co-workers respect and shall help, advise and guide them.”

This sentence is contained in a paragraph about collegiality from the Norwegian code of medical ethics which deals specifically with the issue of guidance. It goes on to say that “… a colleague is a peer and collegiality refers to the way in which peers should behave towards one another. Collegiality is usually associated with solidarity, respect and loyalty”
