Look. Listen. Receive.

 “The first demand of any art is surrender to an unveiling of truth, beauty, or goodness. Art commands attention, demands pause, and models for physicians an appropriate posture of humility before the patient’s unveiling—literally for the physical examination, or figuratively in the collection and review of data.”

This essay, authored by TMC Fellow Brewer Eberly  and published in JAMA,  discusses the parallels between the encounter of truth and beauty in art and the clinical relationship between physicians and patients.
