The Human Condition

An Exploration of Art & Literature

The Human Condition, the annual art and literary magazine of the UC San Diego School of Medicine was borne of the imaginative stories written by medical students in the elective "The Good Doctor: The Works of Anton Checkhov." It is a forum for the creative work of medical students, residents, and faculty of the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Medicine teaches us much about biological life and how to prolong it — however, we must not forget in the midst of the curriculum why one should live or what it means to live well. As a reminder of these central ideas and the art that resides in the medicine, we are proud to present The Human Condition each year.
