Letter from the Editor in Chief
I proudly welcome you to Radioactive’s 5th volume! Radioactive has served as a platform for information-sharing and self-expression among healthcare professionals at AUBMC since 2013, and has provided them the opportunity to delve into topics they feel passionately about, the ones that they believe are worth sharing with others.
Thanks to the dedication of our board members and the loyalty of our readers, this newsletter is now the largest it has ever been. This issue explores a myriad of subjects, including but not limited to palliative care, mental health, healthcare policies, alternative medicine, the future of certain medical specialties, and more. Also included are reflective articles that challenge the unidimensional perception of physicians, as well as book recommendations that have deeply touched faculty members.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy flipping through its pages, and that you will learn something new while reading it, be it about yourselves or about the medical field.
Radioactive is a student-led newsletter, committed to publish two issues each year that are tailored to the interests and experiences of AUBFM's medical and graduate students, interns, residents, fellows, professors, and attending physicians. We are looking for innovative, creative, and dedicated writers and contributors willing to share their AUB and AUBMC experiences. We encourage informative articles, opinion pieces, editorials, free expression, coverage of variable aspects of student and hospital life, campus developments, and institutional milestones. Creative contributions including original photo captures, illustrations, or other works of art are most welcome.
Submissions are open to all medical and graduate students of AUBFM, interns, residents, fellows, professors and attending physicians of AUBMC.
If you have any interesting topics that you would like to read about in the upcoming issue, feel free to let us know through our
or by sending us an email.
