Healing and the Nature of Medicine

Healing and the Nature of Medicine


Our initiative with Catholic physicians from the Mayo Clinic seeks to bring an adequate anthropology to bear on contemporary medicine. Through a series of meetings, courses, and conferences that bring philosophy and theology into dialogue with the state of the medical art, we explore the nature of health and medicine in light of a full understanding of the human person as embodied gift in order to provide a standpoint from which to address the challenges facing physicians and other health care professionals in today’s cultural and scientific environment.
