  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Auxocardia is a place for students and future providers to share in the process of becoming. It is a place for the heart growing, the heart-breaking, or literal questions about the heart (why is it important? Why does it keep beating? Why do I have chest pain? Ok, maybe not that last one.) Auxocardia seeks to share the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of medical, social, midwifery, nursing, and PA school. It seeks to support the med stud seeker in answering questions like “Why am I doing this to myself?” “Why do I suck at this?” and also: “Help.” It seeks to recognize the immense privilege of working in the healing professions, honoring the patients we serve, and recognizing the teachers who shape us, while also offering an honest take on the constant, never-ending awkwardness.

    We welcome reflective pieces, humor, fiction, creative nonfiction, video, art, photography, and expressions from all students and trainees in the medical fields on the humanity and inhumanity of medicine. We are especially interested in stories of struggle, the voices of those who’ve taken unusual routes to medicine, those who are underrepresented in medical fields, our colleagues who identify as POC or members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and of course, we want to hear your story; whomever you may be. Of course, we require any piece that references or refers to patient narratives to be completely de-identified and without any protected health information.
