 Mentoring 
 current student opportunities
Available: 10/07/11, Expires: 12/31/15

In collaboration with local art museums, my colleagues and I use visual arts objects as catalysts for teaching broad areas of medicine, including physical examination, professionalism, humanism, communication, and team work. There are opportunities to conduct survey studies, qualitative research, subject reviews and curriculum development.
