In 1999, the student-run Voyage and Discovery series included talks by Kay Redfield Jamison (psychiatry; author of An Unquiet Mind), Michael Ain (orthopedic surgeon; featured on Hopkins 24/7), and the immortal Victor McKusick (the "father of medical genetics"), among many others. The V&D series focused on the doctors' personal stories -- why did they decide to enter medicine? What do they love (or hate) about it? How do they stay involved and retain their humanity every single day?

Although health-related symposium series at Johns Hopkins are not new, they are always important -- the world of medicine evolves unbelievably quickly, and constant exposure to what's going on is crucial.

The Osler Medical Symposium (OMS) is the newest exciting addition to this tradition. (Another important development is the Hippocrates Medical Review -- read more background here and here).

Congratulations to the students who conceived of and then made this speaker series and journal happen. And thank you, from healthcare practitioners as well as those who depend on them.
