Medicine is all about relationships. They begin with the sacred trust health professionals establish with their patients. That trusting relationship defines all others in medicine, and at an academic medical center like ours, it extends to those between caregivers and patient families, among educators, students and residents, between researchers, and among all staff and coworkers on the healthcare team. To be humanistic is to be compassionate, respectful, altruistic, empathetic and service-oriented. It is seeing each individual as worthy of deep respect.
At The Ohio State University College of Medicine and the Medical Center, we continually look for ways to create a more humanistic environment in which to teach, learn and work. From compassionate patient care to enthusiastic and innovative teaching, we foster life-long learning, excellence in patient care and support for leading edge research. The Humanism in Medicine Initiative serves as a home for humanistic programs across our College of Medicine and our Medical Center.
