The Art of Healing

The Art of HealingA relationship between the Museum of Fine Arts and Brigham and Women’s Hospital nurtured by Mrs Karsh explores the role of art in healing.

‘An innovative program in Boston shows medicine is an art as much as a science. It teaches physicians in training to use their eyes and ears to connect with patients and enhance the practice of medicine, reports CBS medical contributor Dr. Tara Narula.
