Amazingly talented MD/PhD student Sam Scharff has had his blog and artwork featured in a recent issue of the Journal of Medical Humanities. Sam writes:

While I have enjoyed many positive experiences in medical school, my time as a student has also proved to be challenging in ways that I could have never expected … At first I began writing and illustrating mostly for myself, as I assumed that others wouldn’t really find my art to be particularly meaningful. But … I came to understand that many of my peers were experiencing similar challenges.

Sam’s blog is Sketchbooks and Sutures.
