Presentation Title: When Drafting meets Doctoring: An architect’s view of health design as a resident physician
Event: Healthcare Design Expo & Conference 2013
Presentation Date: November 18, 2013
Event Location: Orlando, FL
Dr. Anderson leads a round table session discussing the architect’s view as a resident physician.
Imagine the lessons learned if the architect could know what the doctor knows. This unique discussion provides an inside look at the hospital environment through the eyes of a “Dochitect”—a hybrid professional in medicine and architecture. Hear the story of health design from an architect pursuing internal medicine residency training and uncover new perspectives as you go with her on core rotations. Case studies highlighting the importance of space design will be shared with design anecdotes and functional analysis of hospital departments emphasizing the practical importance of design qualities that impact the work environment for staff and healing environment for patients and families.
