A Time-Honored Ritual of Care and Trust
The bedside encounter between a patient and physician is central to the practice of medicine. This time-honored ritual provides the basis for trust and healing for the patient, but is also an important source of fulfillment and satisfaction for the physician. It is fundamental to accurate diagnosis and high-quality patient-centered care.
The Society of Bedside Medicine is a global community of physician educators dedicated to bedside teaching and improving physical examination and diagnostic skills. The purpose of the society is to foster a culture of bedside medicine through deliberate practice and teaching, and by encouraging innovation in education and research on the role of the clinical encounter in 21st century medicine.
