De Tocqueville coined the term “habits of the heart” in Democracy in America (1835) to describe the values, motives and goals of citizens in a democracy. But these habits go beyond our minds and include moral intuitions, meaning and purpose and how we relate to others. Building on the work of De Tocqueville on the essential habits of the heart (aka virtues) of citizens, in this presentation we examine what habits of the heart are vital to become a productive citizen in the professional setting. We argue that the cultivation of the virtues with a particular focus on practical wisdom, in medical education and professional ethics, provide a deeper understanding of moral agency essential for the development of a professional identity in medicine.
