Untitled (“I will exercise my art solely for the good of my patients”)

Ann Arbor, MI

Yitzhak Assour
2009; Bronze; Sculpture
Medical Campus; In courtyard on west side of the Frankel Cardiovascular Center

Gift of D. Dan and Betty Kahn. The sculpture represents two physicians deeply involved in conversation about a patient and is intended to express the earnestness and collaborative nature of their work. Having both female and male figures is meant to show that the physicians are of equal standing—this symbolizes the changing face of medical students and the increasing number of women in the profession.
