A Colorful Walk With Medicine

About the Artwork

“Though it is a dark and lonely walk with medicine, there are many colorful and bright personalities that light the way, whether they be patients, other healthcare workers, faculty or peers. I have been inspired by so many I have met through my voyages in medicine, something I wanted to convey through this photograph. As others have impacted me and will continue to do so, I hope to impact them for the better in my role as a future physician.”

Sally Trinh, a third-year medical student at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at the Florida International University, has been interested in creating artwork since attending an art school as a small child. Her main medium is drawing with pen and ink, but sometimes she dabbles in photography, paint and colored pencil. Art helps her convey her thoughts and de-stress during the hectic journey through medical training. She also uses it to help raise funds, donating her works to art auctions, like one for the school’s mammography clinic for the underserved. Her work can be found in recent editions of her school’s medical-arts journal, Eloquor.
