MedConference organized by the American Association of Medicine and the Person

October 16-18, 2015

Florham Park, NJ 07932

As medical professionals, we are often called to make difficult decisions regarding appropriate treatments for our patients.

Recent advances in genomics and genetics are beginning to be translated into the clinic, informing physician treatment decisions, leading to novel “personalized” treatments.

We recognize that the nature of the person is also expressed by desires, preferences and critical questions of meaning.

We propose that the promise of an authentic “personalized” medical care can only be achieved by addressing all aspects of a sick person’s experience, including their genetic make-up, the genomic make-up of their diseased cells, as well as an attentive evaluation of the patient’s needs and expectations.

The Purpose  

The MedConference, in its 7th 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.
