Faculty-Staff Christian Forum at the University of Pennsylvania

“The Doctor-Patient Relationship: Our Post-House-Call Era” is our primary focus this semester, with other topics interspersed.  Healthcare issues touch us all in many ways, whether we are clinicians,  patients, or family and friends of patients.  One emerging ethos–Patient Centered Care–not only mandates that patients be treated with basic respect and decency, but also encourages recognition of the individuality of each patient. (See March 19th Calendar posting.) Within this ethos, a cogent Christian or theistic worldview is a refreshing wind of change in a climate of reductionist medicine with its underlying worldview of materialism.

See our Calendar page, for each week’s presenters and topics.  All are welcome, from both sides of Spruce Street!

Dave DeHuff, for the FSCF Steering Group: Ray Townsend MD, Jim Kirkpatrick MD,* Mike Atchison, Phil Gehrman, Gina Barrett (*ad hoc member)
