Indications for Artistical Work in Training of Surgical Skills
4th Annual CSF Disorders Symposium: From Canvas to Clinic - Art & the Management of Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders
BROWN UNIVERSITY - PROVIDENCE, RI - JUNE 15, 2019
Dr. Curt Doberstein
gives a great lecture on the use of art in the training of neurosurgeons. Changing times create new barriers in the effective coaching of neurosurgical trainees-- but luckily, art can be used to fill in gaps that those barriers produce. Drawings, videography, 3-D imaging and printing, virtual and augmented reality, as well as simulations can all be used to train future neurosurgeons. Art is a valuable tool in any neurosurgical residency program.
Dr. Doberstein sums up his presentation emphasizing the importance of one-on-one coaching and the embracing of new technologies to train the neurosurgical experts of tomorrow.
This presentation was made at the 4th annual CSF Disorders Symposium held at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine
of Brown University
. The title of the meeting was "From Canvas to Clinic" and identified the important connections between art and medicine. (2019)
