11th Annual Bucksbaum Institute Symposium

Chicago, IL US
October 7, 2022
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the change in the doctor-patient relationship and the challenges concerning patient access to care and equity will inform this activity's focus. The doctor-patient relationship is at the heart of medical care because for several reasons. It serves a universal need to help patients who need doctors' help. Most medical help—more than 1.5 billion outpatient visits annually in the United States—is provided in individual encounters between patients and doctors. Patients and clinicians like and want to preserve the doctor-patient relationship, and good doctor-patient relationships offer the best quality and the most cost-effective care.
This symposium features lectures from faculty members and students engaged in research designed to address a component of the doctor-patient relationship. Their presentations will highlight the challenging aspects of the doctor-patient relationship, the research designed to help ameliorate this challenge, and the outcome of the research. It will provide clinicians with information they can use to improve their practice.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for faculty, staff, and students who practice clinically at UChicago Medicine.
