Abstract

Background: The development of person-centered medical education is inscribed within an international programmatic movement toward a medicine focused on the totality of the person. This movement, with broad historical bases, has been maturing since 2008 through conferences with global health institutions, research projects, and academic publications. A key challenge in the application of person-centered medicine (PCM) to the practice of medicine has been the elucidation of its core principles and the development of operationalized measures that allows for assessment of the degree of person-centeredness in clinical care and medical education.
