Despite medicine’s impact in our lives and the world, there has been little attempt to help break the barriers between doctors and researchers and those who are affected by medicine on a daily basis. The Hippocrates Med Review is a medical journal that aims to humanize medicine to make it accessible to those who need the information the most: the patient.
Additionally, in recent years, the term “medicine” has been broadened to encompass more than just physical health; mental and economic health, through the lens of medicine, are increasingly important to a patient’s quality of life. By placing an emphasis on domestic health, global health, biotechnology, medical humanities, and clinical medicine, we hope to spread the idea of new medicine, which looks at medicine further than what happens in a physician’s room.
The Hippocrates Med Review aims to improve population health by tackling the information gap between patient and providers, train the next generation of caregivers to challenge their approach on the patient-provider relationship to make it more patient-centered, and empower the public to fight for their healthcare rights with increased health literacy.
