Arts and Medicine Institute at the Cleveland Clinnic

Welcome to another good day.

I have just stumbled upon a beautiful program at the Cleveland Clinic called The Arts and Medicine Institute. This institute hosts a number of programs including art, music and dance therapy and dance and music concerts for patients.

The item that really intrigues me, however, is a Doctor-Patient Music Connection program. Musical performances by doctors and patients are mounted with the help of local professional musicians. The ensuing discussion between doctors and patients about the concerts and music in general is thought to enhance the level of relationship between these two groups. The doctor/patient relationship is so important, so kudos to the Institute for their innovative approach to developing this connection.
