Correction to: More than visual literacy: art and the enhancement of tolerance for ambiguity and empathy

The original article was published in BMC Medical Education 2017 17:200


Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that the corrections they had requested for Table 3 had not been implemented, and that the title for Table 2 included an unnecessary indication for remark/reference (“a” in a superscript font) at the end of the title. Also, the affiliation of the authors had not been clearly stated: it should read ‘Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Safed Campus, P.O.Box 1589, Safed, Israel’.

The tables should appear as follows:

Table 2 Aggregated Two Years’ Frequencies, percentages and cumulative percentages for four basic abilities
Table 3 Frequencies and percentages for different aspects of empathy (2016)

The original article has been corrected.
