Scope of Practice

Scope of Practice is a medical student-driven magazine offering a creative outlet for student expression, published by UICOMR in cooperation with UICOMR Marketing and Media Services.

Our student team of editors is a small group of medical students passionate about the humanities and cognizant of the positive influence of creative expression as we navigate medical school. From art and music to op-eds and creative writing pieces, we’d love to see what you create. If you’d like to see your work published on our website, send it to:
