About The Hippo

The Hippo is a literary and visual arts magazine for and by students at the University of Michigan Medical School.  Founded in the Fall of 2009, it publishes original works of fiction, nonfiction, art, photography and comedy.  It is entirely student-run and generated.  The title of the magazine is derived from “The Hippocratic Oath,” the guiding code of the medical profession.

The Hippo is sponsored by the U of M Center for the History of Medicine as well as the medical school’s Office of Student Programs. We would like to thank our faculty advisor, Dr. Howard Markel, for his time and support.
