Art of Examination: Art Medical Diagnosis Course with UTSW, UTD, DMA
The Art of Examination
The O’Donnell Institute partners with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and The Dallas Museum of Art to engage medical students in observing, analyzing, and communicating about works of art in order to develop their diagnostic skills.
The Art of Examination is a preclinical elective course open to first- and second-year medical students at UT Southwestern Medical School.
It is taught primarily at the Dallas Museum of Art, with sessions at UT Southwestern Clements Hospital, The Nasher Sculpture Center, and The Warehouse.
This innovative and interactive course uses museum collections to explore ways of looking at works of art through close examination, description, and empathy.
