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.
It really does matter. Thinking about medicine in a person and people centered way realigns us back to the core values of the medical profession. It is not about semantics, just another redundant prefix to the study of medicine. It is a movement and a journey that physicians and all health professionals need to embark upon.Click here to read more
The ongoing development of person centered medicine to which our International College is committed proceeds through several key activities. These include our Geneva Conferences and its Geneva Declarations, upcoming International Congresses, research projects on conceptualization and measurement, integrative diagnosis, and clinical care guidelines, and this International Journal of Person Centered Medicine.Download the Vol 3, No. 1 Editorial Introduction Download the Vol 3, No. 1 Table of Contents
