WELCOME

The International College of Person-centered Medicine is a non-for-profit educational, research, and advocacy organization emerging from the Geneva Conferences on Person-centered Medicine since 2008 to date aimed at promoting the articulation of science and humanism in medicine and health care and refocusing these on the whole person.

Person-centered medicine is dedicated to the promotion of health as a state of physical, mental, socio-cultural and spiritual wellbeing as well as to the reduction of disease, and founded on mutual respect for the dignity and responsibility of each individual person.

From the International Journal of Person Centered Medicine

Vol 6, No. 3 Editorial Introduction

Culture and experience appear clearly within the core conceptualization of Person Centered Medicine. This is so since the early roots of this perspective in ancient Asian civilizations and the Hellenic ones, cradle of Western civilizations. This is also the case in the millenarian cultures of the Americas and of Africa (e.g., the Ubuntu). In broad terms, all of them articulate a comprehensive and harmonious framework of health and life and promote a highly personalized approach for the treatment of specific diseases and the enhancement of quality of life. These early roots represent much more than museum pieces, as most of them continue mutatis mutandis to inform life in today's world, particularly in traditional societies but also to significant extent in industrialized ones.
