Submit to “Process: a book project” by May 1st

I’m working on a book project that will focus on medical trainees’ journeys through medicine, especially the non-academic, emotional aspects of their journeys. The dream is for the book to include submissions from medical students and residents all over the world and to be a book that anyone in medicine can pick up and find stories or reflections that resonate deeply with some part of his or her own experiences in medicine. I want the anthology to highlight how medical training changes a person—for better or worse—and capture, best it can, what it feels like to be in medical training: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I’m hoping that by sharing our stories, we can break down the isolating walls that our training often builds around us and support each other to reach our destinations healthy and whole. I also hope that, on a larger scale, the book sheds light on the strengths and flaws of current medical training in a way that leads to a stronger, more supportive system.

The website below has more information on the project as well as some prompts that may help you reflect on possible topics to write about.

We all have different backgrounds and unique insights into our internal journeys through medicine, so please consider submitting a story, reflection, essay or poem. There is really no restriction on style or content and all medical students and residents are welcome to send in submissions to processbookproject@gmail.comQuestions can also be sent to the same email address. Submissions in any language are welcome but non-English submissions should be accompanied by an English translation.

Submissions will be accepted through May 1st, 2017 and you can expect to hear back by May 10th, 2017.
