Blood and Thunder is a medically themed arts journal published by the students of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

This journal is 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 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
