This chapter discusses areas of medicine such as ethics to see how they would fare if medicine's primary focus was on something other than the disease itself. It begins by examining the problems that would arise if the sick person became the central concern of medicine and physicians. The chapter takes a look at the search for a new basis for clinical medicine and provides a number of solutions.

Keywords:   areas of medicine, ethics, clinical medicine, solutions, problems, medicine, physicians, sick person
