Continuing Medical Education Workshop
Led by an interdisciplinary team of art educators and clinicians, this three-hour workshop uses art experiences to encourage reflection on how we make meaning from what we see, or think we see. The medical model values pattern recognition and quick processing of visual information. While these skills are essential to competent clinical practice, in order to be effective and fully intentional in observation and interpretation in a clinical setting, providers must also be aware of factors that impact both processes. This workshop provides an opportunity to slow down the process of observation and build insight into the many factors that may influence perception. Awareness of personal thought processes is a cornerstone of mindful clinical practice.
Through guided engagements with carefully selected works of art and collegial discussion facilitated by physicians, participants 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 earn 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ on completion of the workshop. Social workers earn 3 CE credits pending approval by NASW RI.
Space is very limited and early registration is strongly encouraged. Workshop cost, including dinner, is $70. Participants who register before April 19 receive a $5 discount; residents receive a $35 discount with code CMERES.
