Cover art for Academic Medicine

The presigious journal Academic Medicine is looking for works of art to put on their covers. What a great opportunity for those working in the field. This is the deal:

Cover Art
These original works of art should be inspired by, but not necessarily representative of, a health care experience from any perspective-caregiver, student, or patient (for example, learning how to be a physician or scientist, caring for patients, exploring research questions, making a new discovery, being a research participant, teaching, or being cared for in a teaching hospital). The journal welcomes photography, sculpture, painting, textile work, and other visual media. Images may be cropped or resized to fit into the allotted cover space. Acceptance is contingent on the artist's signing an AAMC Artist Consent Form.

Artists will have the option of submitting a related Teaching and Learning Moment (TLM) as a narrative companion to the artwork, to explain the connection between the work and the "academic medicine experience". The related narrative should adhere to TLM submission guidelines Based on the individual strength of the artwork and the supporting TLM, we may occasionally choose to publish one without the other.

High-resolution TIFF files with a minimum of 300 dpi resolution are required at the time of submission. Images are at least 4 ¼" x 4 ¼" (with the ideal size being 4 ¼" x 4 ½" ) and are vertical or square, not horizontal. Images must be grayscale or CMYK. Submissions do not require an abstract.
