  • To identify the differentiating features of the right and left-brain modes of engagement
  • To learn how to rekindle a right-brain worldview
  • To understand why a right-brain worldview is important for a physician
  • To see how many physical findings were first observed by artists


  1. Enhance participants' interest in the arts;
  2. Suggest how this might actually be beneficial for their practice of medicine;
  3. Present pathognomonic physical findings;
  4. Foster “visual literacy," i.e., the ability to find meaning in imagery, which in turn translates into the capacity to reason physiology and pathophysiology from visual clues -- a desirable skill for all physicians.
