At the Ninth Annual Hippocrates Poetry and Medicine Symposium, convened in May 2018 at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois, physician-poet Rafael Campo, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, was joined in conversation by National Book Award–winning poet Mark Doty, distinguished professor of English at Rutgers University. An excerpted transcript of the first half of their dialogue follows—condensed and edited for clarity and concision. The second half of the dialogue appears in an accompanying Arts and Medicine article.
