Blood and Thunder is a medically themed arts journal published by the students of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Each year, 250-300 submissions are received for consideration to be published in the journal. These submissions are reviewed by 30-40 1st-4th year medical students Blood and Thunder volunteers.. It is the goal and purpose of Blood and Thunder to enhance the education of healthcare professionals through the exploration of art for artistic expression. Complimentary copies of this journal are given to all OU medical faculty, students, residents & fellows. It is our hope that reading and viewing the works in this journal will help make our faculty and learners become better caregivers!
