An endeavor to illustrate the College of Medicine's commitment to the humanities, the journal continues to be a creative outlet for the expression of thoughts and emotions associated with the healthcare experience.
It is the goal and purpose of Blood and Thunder to enhance the education of healthcare professionals through the exploration of art and to serve the community as a means for artistic expression.
"…aesthetic pleasure in the beautiful consists, to a large extent, in the fact that, when we enter the state of pure contemplation, we are raised for the moment above all willing, above all desires and cares; we are, so to speak, rid of ourselves." - Arthur Schopenhauer
