As we navigate through our training to become professionals, whether that be to become physicians, scientists, nurses, or pharmacists, we mustn’t forget our human voices. “Between Degrees” is a multimedia literature and arts site partnering with Synapse to publish student works every week. Our hope is to create an online space where students will feel comfortable and proud of sharing their works so that they can inspire others and remind the UCSF community of the things that make us human. Essentially, the site is meant to be an outlet for artistic expression by UCSF students during times when there may not seem to be enough time for such endeavors.
