UR Medicine / Eastman Performing Arts Medicine Center

Eastman Performing Arts Medicine Center

The mission of Eastman Performing Arts Medicine Center (EPAM) is to deliver the collaborative potential of the performing arts and medicine to the healthcare environment; to support the medical needs of artists through clinical and pedagogical support; and to understand through research the underlying mechanisms by which music improves health and well-being.

To achieve this goal, EPAM works within the following four pillars:

For Performing Artists


Providing expert care to performing artists with both chronic and acute conditions.

Arts Enrichment


Performances by musicians in the places that need it most: our hospitals.

Music Therapy


Music and art therapy support the well-being of our patients across their spectrum of care.



Developing the potential of the arts in therapy, rehabilitation, and human performance.

Virtual art experiences, music playlists for stress reduction, concert broadcasts & resources to view, listen, & watch.
