Arts in Medicine – UAB Medicine

About Arts in Medicine

The UAB Institute for Arts in Medicine (AIM) encourages healing through the arts. The first of its kind in Alabama, AIM provides engaging arts opportunities to patients, caregivers, and even clinical staff to enhance their physical environment through creative bedside interaction, art exhibits, and performances in common spaces.

Services are provided by professional artists in residence, all of whom are trained in creative activities for the health care setting. They use visual art, crafts, storytelling, dance and movement, guided meditation, theatre, and creative writing to deliver the proven benefits of Arts in Medicine, which include reduced stress levels, greater pain tolerance, improved moods, and faster recovery rates.

The program is a partnership between UAB Medicine and UAB Visual and Performing Arts and underscores UAB’s commitment to patient-centered care. Piloted in 2013, AIM maintains a rotating schedule for a growing number of UAB Medicine units.
