Background and Objectives: Professionalism is one of the major concerns of human beings in all sciences, especially in medical sciences, and observing this in various periods of human history is considered one of the most important crises of social life. Any negligence and failure to observe professionalism can affect the findings of the most scientific and best care. The present study aimed to examine the role of teaching professionalism in medical community health.
Methods: This review study searched English and Persian databases, including Scopus, Google Scholar, Web of Science, Magiran, Pubmed, and published studies relevant to the subject and library research via an analytical method. Researchers then explored the texts related to the keywords, such as "training", "professional ethic", and "medical staff health".  In total, 320 articles related to the present study from 2000 to 2020 were selected and analyzed by purposive sampling based on input and output criteria.
Results: After examining the previous articles and studies related to the present study, the results of this study led to the extraction of key terms and their definitions, including components of professionalism, definition of ethics, and its sub-categories in the form of theoretical, practical, or scientific ethics.
Conclusion:  The findings show that teaching professionalism has a significant role in the health of the medical community, and it is necessary for policymakers at universities, curriculum planners, and managers to incorporate principles of professional ethics in the curriculum. In order to institutionalize these principles in all educational periods, the principles of professional ethics should be taught and assessed constantly.

Keywords: Education, Health, Medicine, Professionalism
