A piece of artwork created specifically for the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine recently received high praise from the National Academy of Medicine (NAM). 

The painting, done by Dr. David Pizzimenti and titled “Medical Education,” will be donated to ICOM for display in the new facility.

“Medical Education” was selected by NAM to be featured in their nationwide art project, known as “Expressions of a Clinician’s Well-Being.” The art exhibition explores what clinician burnout, clinician well-being, and clinician resilience looks, feels and sounds like to people across the country.

“Our review committee thought ‘Medical Education’ was particularly insightful and would be a thought-provoking addition to our exhibit,” said Charles Alexander, Director of the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience with the National Academy of Medicine.

The painting will be on display in NAM’s pop-up gallery on May 2, in Washington D.C. Additionally, “Medical Education” will be featured in NAM’s permanent online gallery, also launching May 2.
