Dear Mosaic in Medicine family,
Our journeys through medicine so far have exposed us to so many unique circumstances and situations that have shaped and influenced us in a variety of ways. As future health care professionals, the lessons that we have learned and our individual experiences are rich and deserve to be heard. There are many things that we can teach and learn from our superiors, fellow colleagues, peers, and the students who will come after us. This is exactly what we hope to do with our print book project for Mosaic in Medicine. Our ultimate goal is to compile these stories together into a book that demonstrates the diversity of experiences and perspectives of our future health care professionals. Submissions are open to all allied health students and professionals. Submissions from groups who are traditionally underrepresented are highly encouraged. In particular, we are looking for writing submissions that not only detail the lessons you learned from your personal and professional lives but also how those lessons have impacted your identity and may be important for others to learn from. Specifically, we are seeking submissions that satisfy the following:
- Book and chapter cover arts of any medium that reflects the book theme and written submission themes as detailed below. Please note that the artwork will be printed black and white.
- Written submissions:
- Impactful preclinical, clinical, and personal experiences
- Moments in history covering recent political shifts and policy changes including but not limited to abortion rights, gun violence, COVID-19, and their impacts on health care
- Lessons learned during post-graduate/residency
To be considered for publication in the print book, please submit your entries by November 1, 2022. Any entries not selected for the print book will be considered for publication on our website. Accepted entries will be subject to peer review and can be listed as peer-reviewed publications for one’s CV. This print book is supported by Pager Publications, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit literary organization that curates and supports peer-edited publications for the medical education community. Expected publication date is mid-2023.
