Note from the Editors

Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary field that incorporates multiple disciplines. At Boston College Medical Humanities classes are often broken up by type––biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities––yet the writing produced from these classes often falls in between disciplines. In fact, we encourage overlap and exploration. 


Previous publications provide examples of the type of writing that we hope to elicit. Some of these pieces include clinical elements, some discuss history or sociological aspects of health, and others explore creative non-fiction. All discuss medical themes and write about a variety of fields.


We encourage creativity and want students to submit any piece they believe might fall under Medical Humanities. Our hope is that this journal allows students to try out new forms of writing and art, and thus we are looking for submissions to employ a wide variety of techniques and styles. Please feel free to try out a form of writing that you may not have had the opportunity to attempt, including interview articles, fiction pieces, and poetry.
