The questionnaire comprised 25 items including professionalism scale by Hall, Snizek, and Anderson by Likert 5 point scale. Results: Professionalism scale revealed self-regulation(3.65±0.58), service conviction(3.64±0.62), skills and training(3.21±0.70), sense of professional vocation(3.20±0.65), and thought about professional group(3.08±0.78). The professionalism identity by general characteristics showed significant differences and there were positive correlations in main factors.
