The Pulse of Art:

Course Overview Course Description The Pulse of Art: Connections Between the History of Art and the History of Medicine is a unique, full-semester course that harnesses the power of significant works of art to increase the observation skills and empathic responses of medical students, physicians, and health-care providers. By organizing the course into thematic topics ranging from plague and ebola to portraiture and prosopagnosia, and recognizing historic contexts for the art and science discussed, students also gain an awareness and understanding of the trajectory of medical understanding and discovery.
