In this chapter, the authors explore the concept of excellence in teaching by considering both what has been published in the literature as well as case examples of learner-centered, art-based approaches to medical education. Five issues that relate to using art in medical education discussed include: (1) Learning to Look: visual literacy and its role in developing diagnostic abilities; (2) Building Bridges: the role of art in encouraging inter-disciplinarity; (3) To Cope or Not to Cope: the role of art as a stress-reduction strategy;(4) Death by PowerPoint: transmediation for learning the science of medicine; and (5) Doctor as Artist: the role of art and art-making during professional (medical) identity formation. The authors utilize three case studies to demonstrate 2, 4, and 5.
