Design of Health & Human Dignity


MEDstudio is part of Jefferson’s drive to revolutionize the way our country engages with healthcare. The two-year-old program fuses mindsets from design disciplines like the fine arts and fashion with the practice-oriented health science curriculum at Sidney Kimmel Medical College to foster empathy, creativity, and interpersonal connectivity in aspiring physicians.

Peter Lloyd Jones, PhD, is the program’s executive director and a scientist with a penchant for thinking outside of boxes, whose understanding of molecular biology and the microscopic structures of our cells has been deeply informed by his passion for architecture. His educational work with MEDstudio is rooted in a conviction that breakthroughs emerge from embracing difference.
