Auscult is a literary and arts journal that has been published periodically at the Medical College of Wisconsin since the early 1990s. A completely student-edited journal, it showcases the creativity, compassion and artistic talents of our medical community. The magazine includes poetry, fiction, non-fiction and visual arts created by MCW students, staff, faculty and hospital affiliate employees.
The 2019 edition of Auscult presents stories, poems, images and essays, each depicting a part of the shared human experience. This publication was edited by MCW medical students Joseph Hodapp, Kyle Murray, Kimberly Tyler, and Alexandra Cohn. They find it a privilege to encourage peers and colleagues to celebrate the humanities by providing this opportunity to share their work with the MCW community.
You can view this year's publication online or by purchasing a hardcopy in the MCW bookstore or through Amazon.
Auscult now accepts submissions on an ongoing basis. The submission of multiple pieces is welcomed.Submit to Auscult
