In 2016 and 2017, we started an innovative learning track in the Radboudumc that combines arts and medical education, and appraised the learning processes involved. The voluntary track was followed by 32 and 30 participants respectively, mostly interns and a few residents. The initiative built upon the ideas of several American educational developments which incorporated museum visits. We extended the format by having participants join artists in their studios, to allow students to have an immersive experience of a different discipline, rather than only observing its end products. The track did not have specific learning objectives. However, participants were encouraged to set personal goals and to reflect on what they learned in terms of observation skills, creative thinking, personalized health care, and frame reflection. Here we report the rationale of the track, and illustrate preliminary conclusions with participants' quotes.
