The Medical Culture Center “Giuseppe Roi” arose thanks to the will of preserving and studying medical perspectives regarding Ethics, Culture and Humanism. It is a real circle of debate, deep analysis and cultural exchanges, in which Medicine compares and intersects herself with philosophies, arts and general culture.
Its aim is making medical knowledge progress less impassive and standardized, but especially characterizing it with feelings of empathies, solidarity, esthetics and attachment towards the patient.
The center activity, dynamic and always innovative, is intended to avoid technicality to become substitutive and not integrative of medical knowledge, as well as to rediscover and strengthen, rather than to overpower, the doctor-patient relationship.
The Medical Culture Center is located in the IRRIV multimedia hall, whose realization was financed by the Giuseppe Roi Foundation. It was inaugurated on the 5th of June 2012, in the presence of the Professor Umberto Veronesi, together with many authorities.
The Medical Culture Center, in addition to the previously listed purposes, couples and sustains the no-profit association“ Associazione Amici del Rene di Vicenza onlus” in support of voluntary works and researches through fund raising and charity events.
Humanistic Medicine School: To complement the post-graduate training in the medicine field, Humanistic Medicine School offers courses focused on the relational aspects of clinical practice for Italian and foreign students.
