About This Journal

Quill & Scope: The NYMC Student Medical Journal was founded in 2008 for the purpose of providing a platform for students of all years and schools to express their views on the contemporary issues in healthcare. Diversity and breadth of scope are core values of the journal, as are integrity and professionalism. The journal is published annually in the spring, after submissions are evaluated by an editorial board consisting of students and faculty. Students from any year are invited to contribute original pieces of work throughout the first half of each school year. All forms of art and literature will be considered for publication; commentaries, reviews, research abstracts, poetry, photography, and artwork have appeared in the past. Topic choice is the contributor's. All will be reviewed!

As with all endeavors, financial support is needed to improve, sustain and distribute this work. Through sharing experiences confronting the personal, social, economic and ethical issues of contemporary medicine today, we can contribute to professionalism and provide insight on the issues, which have begun to impact our professional judgment and clinical decision-making. We invite you to join us in this endeavor and support this unique undertaking to take patient advocacy beyond the classroom.
We ask that you consider making a tax-deductible gift to help defray publication costs, distribution and continued improvement of Quill & Scope. You can make an on-line gift by visiting www.nymcalumni.org/give.
