Performing Medicine











Performing Medicine provides training to medical students and healthcare practitioners using the performing and visual arts (at undergraduate, postgraduate and a professional development level).

We work with medical schools to discover ways that arts based teaching can enrich the curriculum and offer an open programme of extra curricular courses and workshops.

We also curate events for the general public which engage with issues at the heart of medicine and healthcare.

Performing Medicine is the only initiative of its kind - unique because it is led by professional artists in collaboration with medical educationalists and health professionals.

The use of arts in medical training can be beneficial to all areas of medical practice - not just by creating a more effective and intelligent consulting room,
but also by inspiring a new generation of researchers who will be working at the creative cutting edge of bio medical science.
