Book Description

The first edition of The Arts in Medical Education outlined the principles and methods for using arts resources in teaching aspects of the medical curriculum. The second edition has been expanded with new chapters, which enliven and enhance the teaching of some of the more challenging areas of medical practice. The book includes many colour illustrations, photographs, poems and literary extracts. It is invaluable to healthcare educators and medical professionals with teaching responsibilities, offering information, structure and inspiration. 'There is considerable art in the practice of medicine. This book represents a practical tool to stimulate educators and learners to consider new approaches to medical education that reflect changing societal needs and practice patterns by introducing the visual and literary arts to medical education; to embrace the art of medicine. Medical schools around the world are exploring the influence of the visual arts on physician practice and understanding the nature of healing as well as suffering. We hope you will find this book an important tool in your exploration of the power and influence of the arts in medicine.'ere is considerable art in the practice of medicine.
