"Cutting Deep: The Transformative Power of Art in the Anatomy Lab" in the Journal of Medical Humanities

"Cutting Deep: The Transformative Power of Art in the Anatomy Lab," which I co-wrote with Katie Grogran, has been published onine in the Journal  of Medical Humanities, and will be in the print edition of the journal in December.  

The article makes the case for “drawing as an active mode of learning which opens a creative space for participants to process the emotional complexities of cadaver dissection…. The anatomy lab can be the training ground for clinical detachment, but many U.S. medical schools are beginning to attend more closely to the emotional aspects of dissection. The authors maintain that the inherently expressive nature of drawing makes the Art & Anatomy course a novel and effective approach to this endeavor.”
