Informed Medicine is not just an advertising slogan; it is the unique way we at SLUCare practice medicine. It means that SLUCare physicians take the time to really listen to your concerns — to be informed about what you're experiencing. In turn, our providers take the time to explain your condition and treatment options, so you have a clear understanding of your own health and feel empowered to make your own decisions.
Informed Medicine is grounded in our academic roots. As the clinical practice of Saint Louis University School of Medicine, SLUCare physicians are actively engaged in education — collaborating with professional colleagues and teaching the next generation of health care professionals. Our doctors are experts in their respective fields.
Informed Medicine also speaks to our ongoing research. As an academic medical practice, our doctors are continually engaged in research to find new and better treatments, surgical techniques, medicines and vaccines. This enables us to deliver the most up-to-date care.
