To the Editor: We read with disappointment
the news that STUDENTJAMA has been discontinued.1 The student section of JAMA, under its various
names (Pulse, MSJAMA, and STUDENTJAMA), has functioned as a refreshing space for an exchange
of the ideas of future physicians. In these pages, students have considered
spiritual assessment of patients, the global HIV/AIDS pandemic, and their
own experience of medical education. They have reflected on the nature of
healing and spoken to the issues at the core of caring for patients.
