If you know of a medical trainee who writes poetry, please share this invitation with them!
Both in the body of the email and as an attached pdf, please include:
- author's name
- email address
- academic institution
- what year of training the poem was written in
- If the poem has been published previously
- If the poem's been published, please provide its citation and proof you have rights to submit for further publication

Poems need not be directly related to medicine or training to be considered, but as it is intended for a medical trainee audience, poems should attempt to teach or to move their reader towards virtues and humanism. If you further questions, please email AOSPoetry@gmail.com
