Clinician’s Eye

Clinician's Eye

Exposure to art helps medical students build their observational and diagnostic ‘toolkit.’ Launched in 2013 in partnership with UVA's School of Medicine, Clinician’s Eye is based on similar programs at leading medical schools, and includes interactive tours as well as drawing and writing exercises.

Testing demonstrates measurable impact after one 2-hour workshop, with 90% of participants reporting improved observational skills, increased tolerance for ambiguity, or strengthened communication skills. In addition to the Schools of Medicine and Nursing, departments across Grounds—from the Darden School to the School of Engineering—utilize the Clinician's Eye curriculum to develop observational skills in students and as a team-building exercise among staff.

To schedule a workshop for your class or department, contact academic curator Jordan Love.


Temporary Museum Closure

The museum will remain closed for pre-planned building maintenance including a new roof and HVAC system. We will reopen with an entirely reinstalled museum for the fall semester.
