Mental Health Monday Arts in Medical Education

In the US, a medical education is not usually associated with visual art, theatre games, or dance. However, there is a growing number of medical colleges integrating arts and humanities into the curriculum. This month we will discuss specific arts-based approaches to support the acquisition of medical knowledge, communication skills, patient care and procedural skills, and other key competencies.
