Abstract: Although there have been a few medical practitioners caring for isolated aspects of the performing arts, such as dance and voice problems, for several decades, the concept of performing arts medicine as an entity in Great Britain is a result of the efforts and dedication of the late Dr. Ian James. Ian James was a clinical pharmacologist, as well as being a very accomplished viola player. His musical talents were sufficient for there to have been some question as to whether he would follow a purely musical career or would go into medicine. He probably chose the latter because as a physician he could still play the viola, with which he continued at a very accomplished level.
