Abstract/Description: BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Student-produced creative arts journals now exist in several medical schools. The Florida State University College of Medicine (FSUCOM) has created HEAL: Humanism Evolving through Arts and Literature. This study sought to determine what influence, if any, HEAL publications may have on medical students. METHODS: A survey utilizing Likert scale questions was sent to Florida State University medical students. Student responses were tabulated and analyzed using SAS 9.2 and MS Excel. A total of 241 (49.5%) students responded to the survey. RESULTS: About 81% of the respondents enjoyed reading HEAL. Many respondents agreed that HEAL promoted patient-centered care (55.9%) and could prevent burnout (61.8%). Sixty-four percent thought that HEAL helped them to understand their colleagues and classmates. CONCLUSIONS: This survey found that the medical students perceive HEAL as having positive value.
