Visit Patient Immersion Experience Exhibit @ Scott Library

No comments :
The John W. Scott Health Sciences Library is proud to partner with the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry to exhibit art projects created by second year students in the University of Alberta’s MD program.

These compelling works of art are part of the MD program’s Patient Immersion Experience (PIE) program, a longitudinal initiative introduced in 2013. Pairs of incoming medical students are partnered with a patient mentor in an innovative program designed to instill a deeper understanding of the human side of medicine by learning directly from patients’ experience of disease and illness. The culmination of this program is the creation of a unique piece of art inspired by the experiences and connections forged between student and patient.

We invite everyone to come by the John W. Scott Library between March 23 and April 22, 2016 to view this wonderful exhibit, which includes paintings, sculptures, photographs and audio-visual installations.  The Health Sciences library is located on the 2nd floor of the Walter C. Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre (enter the University of Alberta Hospital via the 114 Street entrance across from the Health Sciences/ Jubilee LRT Station, or using the the 112 Street entrance; ask for directions at the Information Desk).
