Medical Education in Collaboration with the Arts
The ‘Medical Education in Collaboration with the Arts’ scheme was a joint project between the School of Medical Education and the Cultural Institute at King's which brought together educators and students from the medical school with practitioners from the arts and cultural sector, providing a creative and collaborative space for inquiry and experimentation around innovative, arts-based approaches to learning and teaching. This offered an opportunity for all involved to develop their thinking and practice in new ways, leading to a number of pilot projects that were seed-funded by the Cultural Institute at King’s and will be evaluated and disseminated in partnership with King’s Learning Institute.
An initial two workshops with invited artists/cultural practitioners and academics and students from King’s School of Medical Education were held in Autumn Term 2015. These workshops enabled the participants to explore the potential for Arts and Health Education Collaborations and facilitated the development of pilot arts-based innovation in medical education projects.
The projects which developed from these workshops were then submitted to the King’s Medical Education Innovation Fund for support of up to £4,000 to pilot and evaluate. Teams had to include at least one academic and one arts/culture professional.
Two projects were successfully piloted during 15/16 and a third is still in development. These are:
