The 2015 conference received a record number of abstracts from leading thinkers in the field and provided many rich opportunities to consider healthcare from diverse religious perspectives. Over 300 religious scholars, healthcare professionals, clergy and chaplains, students and trainees gathered to learn and discuss “The Spiritual Dimensions of Illness and Healing.” See photos and videos from the 2015 Conference below.

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.
