MedConference organized by the American Association of Medicine and the Person

October 17-19, 2014

Florham Park, NJ 07932

As medical professionals, we experience a sense of concern for our patients because of difficult decisions regarding appropriate treatment.

The current “high tech – low touch” medical approach seems to overshadow physical evaluation of and interaction with the patient in favor of exclusive use of laboratory tests and electronic clinical data.

What is the focus of the medical act?

We propose that proper medical care can only be achieved by attentive daily observations, continuity of care, and genuine sympathetic interaction with each patient. Thus, key factors for the best medical care include the combination of both clinical and laboratory data and attentive evaluation of the patient’s needs and expectations.

The Purpose  

The MedConference, in its 6th edition, is born out of the desire of a group of physicians, nurses, students and other medical professionals to pursue within the medical field the ideals for which they decided to embrace the medical profession.

The organizers of this conference strongly desire to provide a yearly meeting place where health care professionals can come to dialogue and gain professional credits to rebuild a person­-oriented health care.
