Medicine and art

Medicine is a science, based on more science. Practicing medicine is an art. Many medical schools are showcasing a different kind of art from their doctors, nurses, students and staff.

A recent story in the St. Louis ‘Post-Dispatch’ highlights the paintings, drawings, poetry and more that have been produced as a means of expressing the joy and sometimes deep frustrations of their daily work life. What a wonderful way to enhance the humanity of our caregivers.

Is there a literary/art journal at VCU-MCV or other med schools in Virginia? I’d like to hear about it.
