 Medical Improv is an exciting field that that calls upon the expertise of applied improvisors to help with unique challenges in healthcare. The more applied improvisors understand the challenges that healthcare professionals and consumers face, the more effective they will be in working with healthcare systems.  The more healthcare professionals understand the value that applied improv activities can bring to their work, the more receptive they will be to engaging with the work.
