Hektoen International, founded in Fall 2008, is a journal that explores the interdisciplinary field of the medical humanities. It is published online by the Hektoen Institute of Medicine, a not-for-profit organization promoting medical research and education. The journal is named in honor of Doctor Ludvig Hektoen, a distinguished professor of pathology at the University of Chicago.
The Examined Life: A Literary Journal of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine is a new print journal published biannually by the Writing and Humanities Program at the Carver College of Medicine. A forum devoted to literary prose and poetry, the journal intends to deepen and complicate our understanding of healthcare and healing, illness, the human body, and the human condition.
Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the United States, has been witness to nearly three centuries of human drama. In this tradition we have created the Bellevue Literary Review, a forum for illuminating humanity and human experience. The BLR is published by the Department of Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center. We invite submissions of previously unpublished works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that touch upon relationships to the human body, illness, health and healing. We encourage creative interpretation of these themes.
