ARS MEDICA is a new biannual literary journal that explores the interface between the arts and medicine, and examines what makes medicine an art. ARS MEDICA allows a place for dialogue, meaning making, and the representation of experiences of the body, health, wellness, and encounters with the medical system. Content includes narratives from patients and health care workers, medical history, fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and visual art.

Since our inaugural edition in October 2004 ARS MEDICA remains the only medical literary journal of its kind in Canada, and one of only a handful of such journals in the world, in the rapidly developing international field of the medical humanities.

The University of Toronto Press Journals Division publishes Ars Medica starting with Volume 5; any issues Caversham hasn't stock of can be obtained from the Press:

Published biannually by University of Toronto Press
ISSN: 1910-2070
ARS MEDICA strives to:
be an internationally respected source for thoughtful and provocative fiction, nonfiction and art that addresses the interconnections between medicine, health, illness and the body, broadly defined as the medical humanities.
to appeal to a diverse literary audience, while also being relevant to a wide range of professional readers
to be used as a learning tool by students and their professors in health care and academic humanities
to provide a much needed forum for nonprofessional artists and patients to express their experience of illness and recovery
to humanize the face of healthcare in Canada and to be a voice in the ongoing Canadian healthcare debate in Canada; and to enter into an international dialogue around related topics
to increase the international representation in the journal including reportage and commentary
