The World Federation of Catholic Medical Associations (FIAMC) hosted a congress to discuss the mission of the Christian physician. EWTN Vatican Bureau Chief, Andreas Thonhauser, had the opportunity to interview Doctor Thomas McGovern, member of the Catholic Medical Association of the US.

Dr. McGovern discusses the challenges that Catholic doctors around the world are enduring and how they are coping with the pressures of performing surgeries that go against their conscience protections. Dr. McGovern explains why it is important as a Catholic to go into the medical field. He fills us in on why receiving support from the Vatican is important to health facilities and professionals. Thomas W. McGovern, MD is a private practice dermatologist specializing in Mohs Surgery and Facial Reconstruction in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
