Summary
Over the past decade, several leading U.S. medical schools have developed courses combining art appreciation and clinical observation skills. Medical students venture from the clinical setting to the art gallery, where they are challenged by gallery educators and medical professors to observe and to articulate what they see in the art before them. Such courses aim to cultivate and deepen students' visual literacy, verbal facility, and tolerance for ambiguity with the expectation that more finely tuned visual observation and communication skills will help them to be better doctors. Working with a task force in the UVA School of Medicine, Fralin Museum of Art academic curator Jordan Love has created and piloted The Clinician's Eye, an interactive workshop that aims to refine apprentice clinicians' skills through training in visual analysis. This Medical Center Hour invites audience members to participate—hands-on—in a version of this workshop. A John F. Anderson Memorial Lecture
