New exhibit takes Urban Arts Space visitors 'Behind the White Coat' | Columbus Alive
OSU medical students Elizabeth Auckley and Phillip Anjum collaborated on the series Behind the White Coat with the goal to show the personal lives of medical students outside of the classroom. Auckley painted over Anjum's canvas photographs of the students to create the the thought-provoking exhibition, currently on display at Urban Arts Space until May 7.
From Joel Oliphint for Columbus Alive:
“A lot of the 20th century medical education ideas about medicine removed the humanities aspect and just focused on diseases as an organ system, separating the personalization of disease. Now, we think that really was not the right way to do things. So the focus of the 21st century is moving medicine back to more of a balance — keeping the humanities side of personalization and deconstructing the hierarchy of the physician-patient relationship.”
