Natercia Rodrigues, MD, MSc is a family physician at UR/Manhattan Square Family Medicine. She is also an Assistant Professor, seeing patients, teaching residents, and medical and graduate students. Dr. Rodrigues also coaches new faculty in clinical communication. In addition to her M.D., she completed her Master of Science in Medical Humanities and Bioethics and teaches Visual Arts in Healthcare. This graduate course focuses on the role of close observation and presence in interactions with patients. It uses artwork to guide in-close looking, sitting with discomfort, and exploring the complicated history of medicine. Dr. Rodrigues has a strong interest in bridging arts and medicine, the practice of slowing down, and making a commitment to community health in her downtown Rochester practice.
