The Arts in Medicine Intensive is designed to meet the needs of students and professionals at all levels of experience. The program includes two weeks of on-site programming at the University of Florida. Participants may attend for one week or two.
The Arts in Medicine Intensive is a comprehensive training program for artists, health professionals, administrators, students, educators, and others who wish to explore the roles of the arts in healthcare and community health contexts. This program is organized across two topic-specific weeks.
Week One: Practice
Week Two: Program Planning and Administation
While this intensive is designed as a two-week comprehensive training program inclusive of practice and administration, participants may choose to attend a single week (either the first or the second week). We have designed each individual week to provide substantial education and training in the specific topic area. The intensive also includes online modules, which include additional training topics and resources.
Participants can expect an engaging and highly experiential dive into the field of arts in health. Expect days filled with creative engagement, embodied learning, hands-on skill building, and meaningful dialogue. Participants will leave with deeper knowledge of the field and an array of resources for developing or advancing careers that engage the arts in healthcare and community settings. Expect also to create a lasting network of peers who share your passion for using the arts to enhance health and wellbeing.
