The study of art is a powerful tool to inform the practice of medicine.
Among other benefits, it helps to improve physician empathy and communication with patients, enhance perspective, and sharpen diagnostic skills.
In this program, doctors from Brigham and Women’s and Mass. General Hospital will help you experience iconic works of art from well-known artists, such as Michelangelo and Van Gogh, as they lead you through a visual thinking exercise to diagnose disease. This unusual journey into the canvas will take place in the iconic and historic Ether Dome at Massachusetts General Hospital.
This event is sold out, but the waitlist is still open.
Who it’s for: anyone interested in art or medicine, students, art history buffs
Vibe: interactive, meaningful, open
