Praise for the Journal

"In medicine's high-tech environment, Literature & Medicine is a tangible way of expressing the totality of needs of both patients and medical staff. As a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, it fills an important subject domain in a growing and important specialty. At the Mayo Clinic, we have two institutional subscriptions to Literature and Medicine."

-J. Michael Homan
Director of Libraries, The Mayo Clinic

"Literature and Medicine? Almost as necessary for a medical education as a stethoscope."

-Dannie Abse, M.D.
author of White Coat, Purple Coat and A Poet in the Family

"Literature and Medicine was one of the earliest journals to give a public voice to the pioneers in bioethics. Nobody, it seems to me, has done better since."

-Leslie Fiedler, Ph.D.
Samuel L. Clemens Chair Professor, SUNY Buffalo
author of Freaks and The Tyranny of the Normal

"Literature and Medicine should have a role in the teaching of every medical educator and a place on the shelves of every medical school library."

-Larry R. Churchill
Professor and Chair, Social Medicine
author of Rationing Health Care in America and Self-Interest and Universal Health Care

"No medical library can be considered complete without a subscription to the essential journal Literature and Medicine. It is, in its way, as important as the New England Journal of Medicine or Lancet."

author of Mortal Lessons and Letters to a Young Doctor
