Medical Training and the Arts University Musical Society, University of Michigan

University Musical Society (UMS) and our principal partner, the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS), planned and implemented our joint project, the Medical Arts Program (MAP), from 9/1/2010 through 5/31/2012. The overall goal of the project was to enhance the ability of medical students and house officers (called ‘learners’) at the University of Michigan to deliver high-quality, humanistic clinical care through immersion in and analysis of specially designed arts activities and to offer experiences in health care for artists.

Three project outcomes for the Medical Arts Program:

1. To develop a curriculum that enhances medical students’ and house officers’ ability to provide high-quality, humanistic clinical care through experiences and analysis of the musical, dramatic, and visual arts;

2. To evaluate the curriculum’s success in improving clinical care; and

3. To disseminate the results of this program.
