The Role of Faith in Medicine

A conversation between Terry Mulligan, DO, MPH, and Greg Henry, MD, a past president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, on the topic of the role of faith in medicine, was published in the August 17th issue of Emergency Physicians Monthly. The transcript, published as “The Soul of the Matter: Can Believing in God Make You a Better Doctor?,” is available at the journal’s website,, under Dr. Henry’s column, “Oh Henry.” Because the conversation drifted toward quantum theory, Jason Bryslawskyj, a physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, was invited to offer clarifying commentary.
