Medical Student Essay Prize 

Our group together with the Academy for Medicine and the Humanities hold an creative writing competition, open to all medical students of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. This prize is intended to (a)   foster an interest in psychiatry (b) raise awareness for psychotic disorders (c) recognize creative potential in students during medical training.

Interested applicants are invited to reflect on the subject of psychosis. Applicants may interpret the theme of psychosis broadly from a medical, biological, neuroscience, personal or sociological point of view.  Successful submissions may be in any literary form (e.g. essays, fiction, drama, verse).
