News, Medical Humanities: Terrence Holt, PhD and MD

I like to read medical fiction, and believe that medical students probably do as well (although they have little time to do so).  So today a new category has been added to the EBM & Clinical Support Librarians@UCHC category list: Medical Humanities.

The first post with that tag is about the literary works of writer-physician Dr. Terrence Holt, who has taken an unusual career path to practicing medicine, as he taught literature and writing at Rutgers University and Swarthmore College for a decade before attending medical school.  He recently published a collection of short stories entitled In the Valley of Kings.

Published in the online literary journal, Granta, Dr. Holt’s short story, “A Sign of Weakness” is pitch-perfect.
