What do you believe is the most valuable element of your program? The most valuable element of our program is the fact that we will be teaching medicine from a Christian perspective. One might then ask, what impact the Christian perspective has on medicine? I offer that medicine practiced from a Christian perspective impacts how one approaches various aspects of medical ethics, such as medical morality, patient autonomy, parental jurisdiction, end-of-life decisions, and more. In addition, this perspective impacts the patient-provider relationship and the counseling of patients. Lastly, the Christian perspective on the practice of medicine places patient care into the arena of service and mission and not simply an occupational endeavor.
