John Patrick, MD, studied medicine at Kings College, London and St. George’s Hospital, London in UK. John has held appointments in Britain, the West Indies and Canada. John’s main academic interest in medicine is the treatment of Protein Energy Malnutrition in various diseases and accident trauma throughout the world. His research has been carried out in UK, Jamaica, Canada and Africa. In the 1970s he worked at the University of the West Indies, Jamaica and was involved in the breakthrough of PEM treatment whilst in Jamaica. He came to Canada in 1980. At the University of Ottawa, John was Associate Professor in Clinical Nutrition in the Department of Biochemistry and Pediatrics for 20 years. He is concerned to understand the link between the treatment of the severely malnourished, their beliefs, and their culture.

Dr. Patrick and his wife, Sally, manage the Hippocratic Registry of Physicians whose focus is the practice of medicine as a moral activity requiring authority beyond themselves, an absolute commitment to the sanctity of life, and freedom of conscience for physicians.

Today, Dr. Patrick speaks to Christian and secular groups around the world, communicating effectively on medical ethics, culture, public policy, and the integration of faith and science.
