About the FRAME Library

Rick Guidotti’s initial quest to better understand difference came up lacking. He found stark, dehumanizing images in medical textbooks.

Faces Refining the Art of Medical Education (FRAME) seeks to widen this lens for healthcare professionals, families, and communities. FRAME serves as a web-based educational library featuring short films that offer a broader, more humanized understanding of medical conditions and critical topics.

FRAME is rooted in inclusion and respect. Participants are filmed in everyday settings that capture their humanity and beauty. Viewers can see how participants talk, move, and engage with our world.

Since its pilot at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, our FRAME workshops have accompanied training curricula at over 1000 medical institutions and more than 2500 professional conferences.
