In this paper, the art elements are used in the teaching of clinical medical courses. The research breaks the conventional teaching mode of psychiatric nursing case to promote the students' learning enthusiasm with the mode that students like by using the method of film fragment introduction, PBL problem inspiration and music therapy, respectively. This method enables students to love clinical medical courses more, and consequently have a deeper subjective understanding of patients' symptoms. Moreover, it makes it easier for students to understand the psychological change process of psychiatric patients.
