The Wilbush Patient-Centered Medical Forum

The Wilbush Patient-Centered Medical Forum at the Hebrew University’s IMRIC and Medical School was established by Dr. Joel Wilbush, a pioneering physician and anthropologist. The goal of the forum, says its acting director, Dr. Dorith Shaham, is to “train more empathetic, respectful physicians — doctors who are better prepared to create a sense of trust and intimacy with their patients, while utilizing the most advanced science and technology and the best medical decision-making tools available.” Currently, the main component of the Wilbush Forum is Adam Ve’Refuah, which covers topics such as doctor-patient communications and bioethics.
