Tabula Rasa: Vanderbilt University School of Medicine journal of humanities, seeks submissions

The theme of the issue is, "When Nobody is Looking."

This year, Tabula Rasa: Vanderbilt University Journal of Medical Humanities is seeking to explore behind-the-scenes stories of coping and motivation that pervade medical practice.

Medicine is rife with silent triumphs and untold failures, personal joys and sorrows, persistence, dedication and compassion. Patients and health care professionals alike deal with challenges that demand unrecognized courage and character.

Submissions are welcome from the public. Please include your name, title, address and phone number with your submission. You will be contacted regarding a short bio and picture to accompany your piece. Please see this flyer (pdf) for additional details.

Deadline for submissions is Feb. 1.
