ArtBeat– The University of Toronto UGME Arts and Humanities Blog

We are always looking for student perspectives and contributions to the blog! Art Beat encourages you to post personal thoughts, reflections, comments and narratives. Posts are moderated but not formally edited.

If you are interested in learning more about the craft of writing and getting your piece published, please visit for resources, including writing workshops, seminars and classes.

Does your piece describe a patient?
ArtBeat is committed to protecting a patient’s right to privacy and to the responsible/professional use of social media. Ideally, you will obtain written permission from any patient you write about and it is your responsibility to keep that permission on file. As an alternative, you must change his or her name and omit or alter ANY other identifying characteristics/details. Consult the blog editors/moderators if you have any questions.

How about describing colleagues and friends?
A reader should ALSO not be able to pinpoint a fellow student, resident, local colleague/IP team-member or professor, friend or family member as the subject of your writing unless you have documented their permission to post the story involving them.
