Body Language: Poems of the Medical Training Experience is the new anthology of medical student and physician poems edited by Neeta Jain, Dagan Coppock, and Stephanie Brown Clark. This collection includes more than 90 poems written by 45 physicians, physicians in training, and medical students. The works chronicle through verse the complex metamorphosis from student to physician trainee to attending. Although the majority of this collection comprises medical student poetry, Body Language also includes multiple selections from a handful of widely published physician poets.
