Almighty God,

Give me a deep curiosity about all your creation. Move me to search and question. Give me insight and understanding, A retentive memory And the patience to ponder and reflect. May I not stop short with knowledge, But proceed with the understanding of the heart: Wisdom to view the world with the eyes of faith: Point out the beginning, Direct the progress, Help the completion. Through Christ our Lord.


Dr. John Patrick retired from the University of Ottawa in June 2002. He had been Associate Professor in Clinical Nutrition in the Department of Biochemistry and Paediatrics for twenty years. Dr. Patrick’s medical training was in London, England. He has done extensive research into the treatment of childhood nutritional deficiency and related diseases holding appointments in Britain, the West Indies and Canada. He has worked in Central Africa assisting in the development of training programs that deal with childhood protein-energy malnutrition.

Dr. Patrick now lectures throughout the world working for the Christian Medical and Dental Society in Canada and the Christian Medical and Dental Association in the United States. He speaks frequently to Christian and secular groups and is able to communicate effectively on moral issues in medicine and culture and the integration of faith and science.

Dr. Patirck supports the Canadian Registry of Hippocratic Physicians. The objective of which is to provide a mechanism for identifying practitioners who practice or are preparing to practice Hippocratic medicine, and to bring together practitioners who have an ethical consensus. It also enables practitioners to group together in order to have more influence and impact in their practices, their hospitals, and their communities.

Dr. Patrick is also pleased to lead a Summer conference on The Roots of Modern Medicine with other professors from Augustine College. The conference is geared towards the doctors and dentists belonging to the CMDA and CMDS, who have commented on a need to supplement their education in the liberal arts. Although the conferences have been specifically so designed, we welcome other medical professionals, students, and residents.

The dates of this year's Augustine College Summer Programme (Module VIII - Late 20th Century) are May 31-June 6, 2009 :

Thomas Sydenham
17th Century


It becomes every man who purposes to give himself to the care of others, seriously to consider the four following things: First, that he must one day give an account to the Supreme Judge of all the lives entrusted to his care. Secondly, that all his skill, and knowledge, and energy as they have been given him by God, so they should be exercised for his glory, and the good of mankind, and not for mere gain or ambition. Thirdly, and not more beautifully than truly, let him reflect that he has undertaken the care of no mean creature, for, in order that he may estimate the value, the greatness of the human race, the only begotten Son of God became himself a man, and thus ennobled it with his divine dignity, and far more than this, died to redeem it. And fourthly, that the doctor being himself a mortal man, should be diligent and tender in relieving his suffering patients, inasmuch as he himself must one day be a like sufferer.
