Speaking the Unspeakable

Speaking the Unspeakable was published in Return to House of God: Medical Resident Education 1978-2008. The book marked the 30th anniversary of the publication of the seminal novel by Samuel Shem. It was edited by Martin Kohn and Carol Donley, pioneers, movers and shakers in medical humanities. This book was published by the wonderful Kent State University Press in 2008.

Physician/Writers: Dual or duelling obligations

Physician/writers: dual or duelling responsibilities was originally published in the Spring, 2011 issue of Atrium, a one of a kind arts and humanities journal published out of the outstanding Medical Humanities and Bioethics program at Feinberg Northwestern School of Medicine. It was founded and edited by Katie Watson, who shepherded the rarest of species, a journal that demanded to be read from cover to cover. Sadly, Atrium had to shut it’s doors. I’m grateful this essay was given another life in MedPage.
