There’s a new trend in medicine that is actually older than medical science. New medical students at the University of Nebraska Medical Center are learning to use art and artistic expression as a way to conceptualize diseases and relate to patients.


 

Dr. Bill Lydiatt, a head and neck surgeon at UNMC, teaches a course called the Arts and Science of Medical Decision Making in the High School Alliance program. He’s speaking at UNMC’s Science Café on August 11th. In a preview of that event, Dr. Lydiatt speaks with KVNO’s Ryan Robertson.
