Resilient is very excited to announce the launch of a quarterly zine “Short White Coat Stories: Medical student reflections through art and narrative.”
Medical school is difficult; burnout happens. Increasing awareness of this and a growing emphasis on physician and student wellness have shown that self-reflection and narrative medicine (in its many different forms) can help health care professionals process and proactively cope with the stress, physical/emotional exhaustion, and ever-increasing demands of a career in medicine. As part of its mission, Resilient hopes to foster a culture of wellness at UKCOM. "Short White Coat Stories” will be a zine comprised of student reflections and a creative outlet for us to share our experiences as a learning community. We want to hear your narratives, in whatever form that takes: essays, fiction, poetry, art, photography, etc.
