The world’s sheet, or its shroud, the lanes of a face etched in it. Or words, all of them, all knowledge, the found and lost truth of things, grid lines of metaphor, particles of us or is it waves? - rising and falling onto a brief shore of land. Measurements fail even now of your body, its contours and margin, where its meaning lies, our picture an opening of pure fractal, an unfolding view of coast. What is the unfathomable distance to another person, another place, the invisible track of starlings in murmuration, the wayward trail of your heartbeat on paper, its luck?

We are inviting applications for this year’s Medicine Unboxed student interns.

Our interns are integral to the running of Medicine Unboxed events and also present their own original work and ideas within the events.

Presentations are fifteen minutes long including time for questions, and can take any form at all; in fact, the more creative the better. We welcome and encourage applications from all student disciplines, including art, drama, music, medicine, literary studies, philosophy and allied health subjects. All travel expenses will be remunerated and accommodation arranged.

For more details download the Medicine Unboxed: Students call for participation.

“As non-medic I found it utterly fascinating, revelatory, moving and thought-provoking. Some of the images, phrases, observations are still with me, part of my inner landscape a year later, still challenging and inspiring.”

Michael Simmons Roberts, on Medicine Unboxed: Mortality.
