Dr. Michael Ellis is a medical doctor, futurist, and peace worker, living in Melbourne Australia, where he practices Integrative Medicine. He has higher qualifications in general medicine and paediatrics. He has a special interest in mind/ body medicine and in optimizing the physical, mental and emotional health of the individual. As well as his medical qualifications, Dr. Ellis also has an Honours Degree in Literature, Arts, Philosophy and Social Psychology. He began his professional medical journey at London University where he studied medicine. Forever observant and sympathetic to humanity, it was not long that he noticed that at medical school patients were seen as diseases. When we went on ward rounds there was a hierarchy of figures including, the consultant and then the Medical Registrar and then the resident medical officer and then the circling group of medical students. Patients were cases whether they were seen on the ward round or presented in the lecture theatres as interesting diseases. I would notice unconsciously the institutionalization of the patient who became a cog in the giant wheel of the medical factory called the hospital. These patients had tremendous faith in the doctor but had become without realizing it institutionalized clones of a medieval system. Specialising in wellbeing and life style medicine, Michael Ellis has a preventive approach to medical practice.
