Fine Art of Healthcare program
Our program, at the University of Miami, which includes the incorporation of looking at art, with medical, nursing and physical therapy students, is taking off. On January 19th, we had a meeting, and we now have a student advisory committee ( one student from each graduate school). So included in the mix are deans, professors, museum educators and students. The consensus is that the program's strength is the inter- disciplinary component and the smal, group work. Students really like getting out of their stressful, clinical environment, coming into the museum, and participating in looking at and discussing art works.
