Course Summary:
There is increasing recognition that humanities training and exposure can positively impact the professional and personal lives of medical and scientific professionals. We have developed a graduate medical education curriculum in medical humanities for our local nuclear medicine physician training program. In this session, we will describe the premise and logistical considerations behind the development of this program. We will also introduce the concepts of medical humanities and present and practice some of the skills underlying the analysis of the visual arts from the Harvard Art Museum collection in a fun and thought-provoking way and in a low-pressure environment. We hope this session will be informative, relaxing, and fun!

Course Objectives:

  • Examine the concept of medical humanities.
  • Describe a medical humanities curriculum for nuclear medicine residents.
  • Explore "close looking" as a visual analysis tool. 

CE Information:
CE Credit applications for physicians, pharmacists, physicists and technologists are pending. Check back for updates regarding CE Credit status.
