Elise Detterbeck

Elise Detterbeck, a Museum Educator at the Gibbes Museum of Art, works with students & adults of all ages, in both the museum & in class rooms. Trained in the Visual Teaching Strategy method for art observation, her goal is to guide people through a conversation, aimed at self-discovery. The MUSC “Eye Spy” program for physical therapy students reinforced her belief that looking at art, & responding to it, is a reliable & engaging tool to train healthcare students to look deeper at their patients, for more empathy & better diagnoses. The students responded enthusiastically to their new observation skills & understood how they could connect working with pieces of art to their approach to caring for patients.
