Conference on Medicine and Religion
The annual Conference on Medicine and Religion is a leading forum for discourse and scholarship at the intersection of medicine and religion. It exists to enable health professionals and scholars to gain a deeper and more practical understanding of how religion relates to the practice of medicine, with particular attention to the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The forum is intended in a spirit that builds bridges between theory and practice, science and theology, the academy and lay communities, the various health professions, and the Abrahamic religious traditions.
Each year, the conference is organized by its advisory board of clinicians and scholars who work at the intersection of medicine and religion. Each conference features both keynote speakers and peer-reviewed paper sessions, panels, workshops and posters.
This year, the Conference on Medicine and Religion will be held in Columbus, Ohio from March 12 – 14. The conference this year is entitled: “At the Limits of Medicine: Caring for Body and Soul.”
