Medicine and the Arts Fosters Humanistic Work Environment 

 

The Ohio State University College of Medicine and its Education Mission team have focused on ways to continue to create a more humanistic environment in which to teach and learn. The College of Medicine, under the Humanism in Medicine Initiative, is moving forward with their signature program, Medicine and the Arts. The Medicine and the Arts program is designed to help the College of Medicine and OSU Medical Center come together as a community through the visual and performing arts, as well as establish a relationship with the art community throughout central Ohio.

The Medicine and the Arts program, created in the fall of 2009, was developed by Drs. Linda Stone, Wiley Souba, and Catherine Lucey.

“Those of us who work in the medical center see ourselves as a community that strives to serve our patients, educate our students and residents as well as support our research network. Each day brings a different challenge; each hour calls upon all of our talents and strengths. In an effort to give back to this community of caring individuals, the leadership of the College of Medicine decided to collaborate with the arts community to bring the performing and visual arts into our medical center and our medical school. Call it a celebration of the community of people that serve the medical center or see it as a way we can come together to enjoy the arts and each other, Medicine and the Arts is designed to enrich our lives” explained Stone, who currently serves as Special Assistant to the Dean for Humanism and Professionalism.

The program continues its progression today through the efforts of the Medicine and the Arts Board, chaired by Bryan Martin, MD.

Fellow board member Eileen Mehl, MA, discussed her experience with the program, “Volunteering with Medicine and the Arts is a great change of pace and gives me a chance to learn about many aspects of art and experience lots of art forms.  It does the same for my students and it also gives them a fun break from their studies.  The interesting committee members and art events help keep me fresh and engaged in my job.”

Medicine and the Arts is an on-going series of events that began in May of 2010, upcoming events include:

• Hospital Poets Series featuring Anna Soter, PhD: February 2, 2012 at 12:00noon, Stephanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center.
• College of Medicine Art Show: March 6-8, 2012 from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Meiling Hall Lobby.

Future events will be posted on the Medicine and the Arts website.

From compassionate patient care to enthusiastic and innovative teaching, The College of Medicine and its Education Mission continue to look for ways to make the medical education experience one that fosters life-long learning, excellence in patient care, and support for leading-edge research.
