This session draws on portraits by Mark Gilbert to demonstrate how artists' relationships with people sitting for a portrait can inform how clinicians relate to patients. As featured in the June 2020 Portraiture in Health Care issue of the AMA Journal of Ethics, portraiture applies aptly to health care ethics and professionalism, specifically to nourishing therapeutic capacity in patient-clinician relationships.
