The Bellevue Literary Review, published by the Department of Medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center, was the first literary journal of its kind and holds a respected place among medical humanities scholars and those who write of medicine and illness, healing, and the human body. Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in the United States, may represent a natural starting point for reflection on these issues, and over the years (the review was founded in 2000) the editors have produced a journal of uncommon literary quality.
