The Antidote is a student-run and peer-reviewed journal founded in 2018 that seeks to provide a venue for those at the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta University to feature their literary and artistic works. The title, The Antidote, is an acknowledgement of the fact that it is emotionally and personally difficult to become a physician and to practice medicine in the 21st century, which presents unique challenges that degrade the physician-patient relationship, strain the resilience of those within the profession, and undercut the sacred nature of the calling of the profession. Our journal believes that creative expression is salutatory and that offering a forum for creative dialogues will encourage further engagement with narrative medicine and promote a more humanistic approach to healthcare.
