The University Engagement Programme at the Ashmolean Museum, funded by the Andrew W Mellon Foundation, was established in 2012 to explore ways of using the museum's collections in the teaching of the university, beyond its core disciplines of Art History, Classics and Archaeology. Over the course of its first year the Programme has begun to work with the Medical School and the NHS in undergraduate, postgraduate and professional training in cardiology, neurology and psychiatry.

The session was held in a Museum study room, with discussion springing from a direct encounter with artworks by, among others, Durer, Michelangelo and Filippino Lippi.
