MedConference organized by the American Association of Medicine and the Person

October 27-29, 2017

Florham Park, NJ 07932

As medical professionals, we need time. We need time to heal, accompany, and help our patients along the journey of diagnosis and care.

Our patients need time too. They do not expect us to provide just a service. They seek a human relationship. They desire to be accompanied on their journey.

On the other hand, we live and practice in a time when our administrators constantly underline the importance of being efficient and of managing costs and resources. We understand how important that is to our profession, and value all who help us to improve our efficiency. Yet, we feel that overemphasizing costs may make us forget or even betray our primary mission as health care professionals.

In the current health care system, is it possible to live the human dimension of our mission, while not neglecting efficiency?

The purpose

The MedConference, in its 8th 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.
