The Hidden Curriculum Narrative

During an interview for residency I was asked about my previous article about the hidden curriculum. I spoke of the lessons outside the textbooks and lectures; lessons of hierarchy, role modeling, and more. The interviewer then asked about if there were positive aspects of the hidden curriculum. I told a story from clerkship and recently made a comic about that experience. It was recently published on in-House and is my first attempt at graphic medicine. Enjoy: Lessons

The Human Touch

Western recently put out a collection of poetry, writing, photography, and visual art from its medical students. Great to see the work of peers and those in the years above and below me.  The collection includes two of my works. Learning From Experience was previously posed elsewhere, a piece of visual art about the sacrifices of patients for our learning.  The other piece, Solo, is about my first time skydiving.
