MEDICINE: ARTWORK BY MEDICAL STUDENTS
Now through Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 | During library hours
Main and upper levels, Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library
Course directors, Gretchen Case and Karly Pippitt, emphasize the role ethics, humanities, communication, and gender play in giving and receiving medical care. The art project is assigned to the medical students to provide them an opportunity to personally and creatively explore the unique relationships and challenges of practicing medicine. The course directors’ hopes are that students start to think differently about health care, and express their talents and creativity in alternative ways.
EHSL is also pleased to feature student artwork in two locations—upper level, west entrance and main level, near the treadmill desks and the elevator. Here you will find featured student art from previous Layers of Medicine exhibits.
Make a point to come by to appreciate and explore these collections. Dare to be inspired, to question your assumptions, to think differently about health care, and to dive deeply into the challenges and rewards of the human interactions of the practice of medicine.
