Fascinating Art/Medicine Program at Philadelphia Museum of Art
Saturday, May 13th, 2023 | 1:30 pm until closure
2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA 19130
All health care providers and art lovers are invited to spend Saturday afternoon, May 13 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and learn about a fascinating art and medical education program.

When medical students at the University of Pennsylvania were taught how to look at art by observing, describing and discussing the works, it was found that those students who took the class ultimately had better diagnostic and observational skills. Going to a museum and looking at the art made them better physicians! During our stay, we will enjoy a 2-hour

workshop with the same art instructors who teach the medical students. We will learn about the art/medical education program and together, with the instructors, we will go through the exercise of viewing works of art and connecting them to clinical practice and medical education. We also will have some free time to tour the museum on our own.

This event is in collaboration with our medical colleagues from Delaware Valley Armenian Health Professionals Organization (DVAHPO) and we will meet with them for dinner at a local restaurant. For those of us staying overnight, there will be an opportunity for breakfast on Sunday morning.

The fee for the program is $40 per person, and advance payment is required.
