Our Journal

Narrateur 2019 is now accepting submissions: Poetry, Short Stories, Fiction, Nonfiction, Art, Photography, Sculpture.

Narrateur: Reflections on Caring is an art & literary journal that embodies the school’s commitment to self-expression, compassion and respect for the patient-physician relationship. The art of storytelling is woven into the curriculum of the Zucker School of Medicine as part of its mission to strengthen student self-reflection on the road to becoming critical thinkers and decision makers. 

Narrateur serves as a creative outlet for students, faculty and employees of Northwell Health, Zucker School of Medicine and Hofstra University who wish to make original works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography or art. The literary journal seeks to nurture the voices of all health practitioners as they grapple with the care of their patients, the decisions they must make, their reactions to those decisions, and the outcomes.

Narrateur gives voice to the challenges and the celebrations of patient care. It reflects the practice of medicine on the printed page and provides a home for the health practitioner to express, experience, respect and show compassion for patient-centered care. It is published once a year in the Spring by the Zucker School of Medicine.
