Pharmacy Night at the Museum of Fine Arts - Preceptor-Resident Development Event



Join us for an interactive and unique preceptor and resident development activity at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston!  This workshop is designed to instruct preceptors and residents on how to utilize visual thinking strategies to build upon their learners’ clinical skills. Using art and sculpture within the MFA collection, art educators and pharmacist facilitators will lead four different activities designed to develop observation skills, communication techniques, team building strategies and compassion for patients.  All activities will end with a group discussion on how the activity relates to building effective clinical skills.
