Wednesday, January 18, 1-5 pm

Can looking at art change the way one sees a patient? Can music be used therapeutically in neurologic disorders? Can reflection and narrative writing enhance empathy? This afternoon of workshops and discussions will be led by Harvard Medical School faculty, residents and medical students who are also practicing artists and musicians. We will focus on an investigation of creativity and its relationship to medical practice. Bring your questions, ideas, and examples of how the arts and humanities can intersect and enhance medical practice. Sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Initiative at Harvard Medical School, in association with the Office for the Arts at Harvard.

Enrollment limited to 50 students (graduate and undergraduates)
Location: Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge
