What Can Healthcare Professionals Learn from Art? A Columbia University Physician Finds Answers at the Met
Date:11/14/2012

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an article published in the November 15 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine, Rita Charon, MD, PhD, professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University's College of Physicians & Surgeons (P&S) and executive director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University, examines the ways in which both the physician and the artist inform their practice through recognition of the self in their work. Dr. Charon, a pioneer of narrative medicine as a field of study and a methodology for medical education, sees parallels in the reflection of the artist in the painting and the recognition of self in the meeting of doctor and patient.

Writing the account of a session with an elderly Albanian couple gives tangible form to that session—a form that, like Rembrandt's self-portraits, enables examination, beholding, and learning. In a "pilgrimage" to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dr. Charon observes that the ways in which the self-portrait informs the artist-as-self are closely akin to the ways in which the clinical encounter informs the physician-as-self. The artist's examination of self occurs in the act of painting the self-portrait, which provides dividends for the viewer. And while giving narrative form to the clinical session allows the doctor to look into the "truth-telling mirror" for "a rare view of the self," the dividends from the physician's examination of self truly benefit the patient.

Among the myriad narrative methods and exercises Dr. Charon has introduced to the medical school curriculum is "Art Matters: An Evening for Medical Students" at the Frick Collection in New York. The collaboration between P&S and the Frick marked the first time a visual arts education program has been expanded to an entire first-year medical school class,
