Medical Artists' Association of Great Britain

Together with this year's Dissection Drawing Day.
We will examine if a Live Streaming will be possible.

Medical art, Art in Medicine and Medical Humanities have, in recent years, become popular modes of discourse within the arts and humanities at HE level, encouraged by wider public programmes and funding support by organisations such as the Wellcome Trust, and through festivals such as the Manchester Science Festival.
We will explore, how does Art in Medicine function at the level of training and teaching for the medical professions? What are the benefits for Humanities, Arts and Medical students of engaging with Medical Art, and Art in Medicine? What is the status, in HE, of Medical Art as a practice, does it simply exists as a historical curiosity? What role should be played by the MAA (or other institutions) in these discussions, and how can the Association make itself more visibly active within such HEI discourses?

The 2016 MAA conference will look at medical art past and present and discuss its role in medical teaching today.
Over the two days we will have presentations and events as below:
The New Fabrica translation
"Jan van Rymsdyk: the Artist who Created Obstetri”
