THE ULTIMATE BALANCING ACT: BEING AN EFFECTIVE PHYSICIAN WHILE STAYING TRUE TO MY CATHOLIC FAITH
Combining medicine and religion may be taboo, but the Catholic Church has long been a proponent of science. How does a Catholic doctor approach caring for patients, who may or may not have strong religious beliefs without compromising his own Catholic faith?
SPEAKER: Brian Zylinski
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Brian Zylinski is a native of Buffalo, NY and received his bachelor's degree in biology from Canisius College in Buffalo, a master's degree in biological sciences from the University at Buffalo, and a medical degree from the University of New England in Portland, Maine. He is currently a first-year family medicine resident (i.e., physician in training) at St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica. A life-long practicing Catholic, it was the Catholic Church's strong tradition of service that was a key factor in his decision to become a physician, and his Catholic faith has been instrumental in helping him maintain a positive outlook during both triumphs and struggles throughout his professional and personal journeys.
