This Structured Observation and Analysis Rubric (SOAR) has been developed as part of a project to teach clinical observation and empathy skills to undergraduate medical students through the use of opera as a dynamic, multisensory art medium. The SOAR gives learners the opportunity to watch a particular scene of opera and helps them structure their analysis on 22 different aspects of the production, including those related to the libretto, music, performers, staging, and audience. The SOAR enables learners to look carefully at aspects of the performance that they might otherwise overlook and assists them in translating their skills into observations of dynamic clinical encounters.
