In this issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, we launch a series on “Sharing Medicine.” Encompassing the mutual decisions by physicians and patients that are often referred to as “shared decision making,” sharing medicine describes a broader ecology of the sharing of knowledge, data, skills, and experiences within the medical profession, with patients, and with the public and society.

The Sharing Medicine series begins with 7 Viewpoints, starting in this online issue1 and continuing weekly online. These articles will consider such topics as the importance of understanding the goals and preferences of individual patients, the sharing of medical knowledge among physicians, and the sharing of experiences of illness and care.
