Art and medicine: two significant intellectual fields of human creativity. Even though they are considered as distant, the outcomes of medicine with art combination can be unpredictable, charming and impactful. How medicine contributes in art? How art contributes in medicine? What is the social role of biomedical-influenced art and what is its impact in the general public, the patients and the physicians?
