We tend to think of teaching medicine as scientific training. But healing involves a holistic view of the patient. With that in mind, medical schools are integrating the arts into their curricula.
Studio 360, an NPR show, recently featured ways that medical students are learning about patient care through music, visual art, and narrative.
At BU, Robert Saper offers an optional course to students called the Healer’s Art. His program in Integrative Medicine extends the approach to faculty development by inviting employees to participate in free weekly yoga classes.
