Mission Statement

The McMaster Medicine Arts Interest Group aims to promote the arts and humanities in medicine through initiatives that foster physician wellness, creativity, and clinical competence. 

Our annual arts and creative writing publication, Night Float, strives to display the physician experience through the unique perspectives of McMaster medical students, residents, and staff. Accepted entry formats include but are not limited to art, photography, poetry and prose. 

We also are trying to create a community. Our future goals include hosting collaborative events, running online contests relating to curriculum themes and even facilitating submissions to academic medical arts and humanities conferences. Our hope is that these endeavours will engage the student body and bring attention to the importance of the arts and humanities in medicine.
