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."

-Richard Selzer, M.D.
author of Mortal Lessons and Letters to a Young Doctor
