Continuing Medical Education Workshop: Artful Awareness—Reflecting on Subjectivity in Clinical Decision-Making

November 30, 2017, 5:30 – 8:30 pm
Museum Galleries
  • Physicians 160312 029

Led by an interdisciplinary team of art educators and clinicians, this three-hour workshop will use art experiences to encourage reflection on the impact of physician subjectivity on patient care. Though the value of objective information is emphasized in the medical model, clinicians’ personal experience of patients and their problems—emotional reactions, assumptions and judgment—can also provide important information and impact patient care.

Through guided engagements with carefully selected works of art and collegial, facilitated discussions, participants will build awareness of personal perspective and subjectivity, and consider ways to translate rigorous reflective skills into clinical practice.

A light dinner will be served and physicians will earn 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ on completion of the workshop.

Space is very limited and early registration is strongly encouraged. Workshop cost, including dinner, is $70. Participants who register before November 23 receive a $5 discount; residents receive a $35 discount with code CMERES.
