Preclinical body

The video piece belongs to a series of artworks resulting from an arts-based inquiry conducted at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry in 2011. It explores various representations of the body offered in the different learning contexts in the preclinical curriculum, moving through discovery learning, clinical skills, and anatomy lab experiences. The images and sounds involved derive from thirteen interviews with medical students and their clinical preceptors.
