Dr Charlotte Allan, Academic Clinical Lecturer in Old Age Psychiatry, gives a talk in conjunction with the University Engagement Programme at the Ashmolean Museum.
Psychiatry is not often thought of as a pictorial discipline, but observation and close attention to detail are important aspects of the discipline. This talk describes a teaching programme for Psychiatrists developed in conjunction with the University Engagement Programme at the Ashmolean Museum. It focuses on two themes discussed during this programme: Exploring emotion and Age and ageing. This talk was recorded for the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) in June 2014. Thank are due to Dr Jim Harris, Andrew W Mellon Foundation Teaching Curator at the Ashmolean Museum, and to Wayne Davies, Department of Psychiatry, for IT and audio-visual support in creating this podcast.
