Mona, Mona, tummy ache?

…At the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, med students hone their observational skills by contemplating pictures in an art museum.

…They stand in front of a picture and ask themselves questions about it. What time of day? Is that person laughing or crying?

…Maybe just coming to rest, focusing the mind, and lasering in on a given subject will make the student a better diagnostician.

…We can hope. At any rate, if your problem is sloppy brushwork your next doc will nail it.
