ArtMed inSight uses art as a means of unlocking insight and enhancing visual diagnostic and communication skills.
Our sessions help sharpen the perceptual abilities and heighten the visual sensibilities of medical students, clinicians and healthcare practitioners. The experience serves to increase self-awareness and empathic intelligence while developing technical and communications skills vital to clinical excellence.
We have created a diverse but focused series of workshops and programs which include the close observation and exploration of art from the world’s great museums, interactive discussions as well as hands-on art, writing, and observational exercises.
Why Art and Medicine?
Physicians’ communication skills can be expanded using art observation techniques to develop increased awareness of patient conditions.
Patient visits are time limited. Healthcare practitioners’ training with art techniques can assist in a time-compacted visit in augmenting patient observation skills and effective communication.
Creative reflection can provide new medical insights. Art observation supports creative reflection by providing strategies for seeing anew.
