We invite you to participate in the 2021 Hektoen Grand Prix Essay Competition in honor of Hektoen Institute Board Member Mrs. Hella Mannheimer (1924-2020).

Work must be related to the medical humanities. Topics might include art, history, literature, education, etc. as they relate to medicine. In order to ensure the receipt of a wide variety of articles, we have decided to exclude those dealing with COVID 19 from this contest. We have many articles on medical history, so please search for your topic to see if it has been extensively covered before submitting an article.

Essays should be under 1,500 words. The deadline is September 15, 2021, at 12 pm (Noon) CST.

Hektoen International welcomes international writers with work written in English.
