Fridays @ Five: Smart in Medicine, A New Era
November 22, 2019 : 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
with visual artist Alexa Miller
Friday, November 22, 5 p.m.
Alexa Miller creates experiential learning opportunities that enable leaders, practitioners, and teachers in healthcare to be more effective and mindful in uncertainty. A leading voice for observation and inquiry practices in medicine, and for their cultivation in arts experiences, Miller is an original co-creator of Harvard Medical School’s Training the Eye: Improving the Art of Physical Diagnosis, a course that produced researched outcomes on the impact of arts experiences on medical student learning. A kid who was always drawing, a trained visual artist and arts educator, and an avid reader of the learning sciences, Miller has been teaching medical learners and studying observation and critical thinking processes since 2003. In this event, Miller will explore what it means to be smart in healthcare. She identifies an aspect of smartness deeply intertwined with the arts and creative processes.
