Marshall medical students publish literary, art review

Jul. 06, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A literary and art review titled "Aenigma Medicorum," which includes poetry, photography, musical selections and short essays, has been published by medical students at Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

The book's executive director, Dr. Matthew Q. Christiansen, a 2013 graduate of the JCESOM and first-year resident in the department of family medicine, said the publication is an attempt to strengthen the medical school community by reaffirming commitment to the human experience and clinical excellence.

The name "Aenigma Medicorum" roughly translates to "the puzzle of doctors".

Submissions are made each fall, reviewed by a student advisory board and selected for publication after assistance from faculty advisers. Submissions for the 2014 edition may be emailed to aenigmamedicorum@gmail.com.

Printed copies of the current edition are available through the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs, Marshall University Medical Center. It may be viewed digitally at http://musom.marshall.edu/students/AenigmaMedicorum.
