WELCOME

The International College of Person-centered Medicine is a non-for-profit educational, research, and advocacy organization emerging from the Geneva Conferences on Person-centered Medicine since 2008 to date aimed at promoting the articulation of science and humanism in medicine and health care and refocusing these on the whole person.

Person-centered medicine is dedicated to the promotion of health as a state of physical, mental, socio-cultural and spiritual wellbeing as well as to the reduction of disease, and founded on mutual respect for the dignity and responsibility of each individual person.
