Moyez Jiwa Professor

Moyez Jiwa is a general practitioner, journal editor and podcast host. Professor Jiwa leads a medical school based in Melbourne, Australia. He authored the book The Art of Doctoring. He believes that healthcare can improve by focusing on the quality of the meeting between health care professional and patient. This would forge a truly meaningful partnership between doctor and patient as co-pilot in care. It would also reduce rates of burnout among doctors and future proof healthcare in a world where the population is ageing and more likely to be living with more complex health care conditions.
