Online Poetry Slam!

Monday 29 October 2018

‘Poems for doctors’ is excited to invite students and staff at any of the Scottish Medical Schools to submit video readings of their poems to our first online competition.

We want to hear your poems about your experiences – happy, sad, tragic or hilarious – of human healthcare, medical research, or medical education. Experiences as a patient or a relative, or as a medical professional, or as a medical student.

You don’t have to be a doctor to enter, as long as you are a student (or former student) or member of staff at one of the Scottish medical schools.

Submit by filming or recording your reading, posting it on YouTube, Video, or Soundcloud, and completing an entry form with the web address and your details.

‘Poems for doctors’ is a project which vlogs short seasons of readings of poems by medical professionals or students, from an anthology gifted to graduating doctors in Scotland. It is a collaboration between Scottish Poetry Library and the School of Medicine at the University of St Andrews.
