Institute for Personalized Medicine – Penn State College of Medicine Research

Medicine has always been personalized – what has changed are the tools available that allow medical professionals to provide better care for those with specific conditions. The Institute for Personalized Medicine is Penn State College of Medicine’s commitment to advancing health care for the community through the use of modern technology and more effective tools.

In the past, doctors based treatments on research that studied broad groups of people, finding what was most likely to help a majority of patients. While this approach has been successful, it’s not always efficient, since each person is different. Genetics and biology are unique to the individual, so treatments that work best for one person may not work best for another.

Upon welcoming an inaugural class of 64 students in August 2013, the University of New England College of Dental Medicine became the first dental college in Northern New England. Shortly thereafter, the College dedicated its gleaming new Oral Health Center on UNE’s Portland Campus. 

In filling a glaring educational need for Maine and New England, the College of Dental Medicine is proud to serve students from Maine and its surrounding states, but also recognizes the national impact its program can have. Indeed, the inaugural class reflected a balance of students from New England and also from points well beyond.

Evidence-Based Medicine Tutorial | College of Medicine

Definition of Evidence-Based Medicine

Evidence based medicine (EBM) was originally defined as the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. The practice of evidence based medicine means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.
(Sackett DL, Rosenberg WMC, Gray JAM, Haynes RB, Richardson WS. Evidence based medicine: what it is and what it isn’t. BMJ 1996; 312: 71-2)

The revised and improved definition of evidence-based medicine is a systematic approach to clinical problem solving which allows the integration of the best available research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values.
(Sackett DL, Strauss SE, Richardson WS,et al. Evidence-based medicine: how to practice and teach EBM. London: Churchill-Livingstone,2000)

Evidence-Based Practice is defined as, “Making a conscientious effort to base clinical decisions on research that is most likely to be free from bias,
