Anatomy Education Podcast

Jun 4, 2018

Dr Jac Saorsa is a visual artist, writer and researcher within medical education. She is also the Founder and Director of The Broadway Drawing School in Cardiff, United Kingdom.

Jac joins me from Cardiff for the second podcast that discusses the role of Art in Anatomy. In a wide-ranging conversation Jac outlines her interest in human anatomy and how art can support the humanisation of various illnesses, such as gynaecological and breast cancer. We also discuss the work she has done with medical students on cancer wards and how art can support their understanding of a patient’s emotional experience.
