Pritzker Poetry Contest

The seventh annual Pritzker Poetry Contest is now open for submissions! All those involved in patient care at the University of Chicago—from the front lines to those working behind the scenes are eligible to participate. We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to the contest over the last several years, and we look forward to continuing this meaningful tradition of reflection and creative expression.

The Pritzker Poetry Contest aims to recognize and celebrate the humanistic side of medicine and to foster compassionate patient care throughout our community. Under the generous sponsorship of Dr. Rama Jager, the Pritzker Poetry Contest offers four monetary prizes of up to $1,000 awarded to the first and second place winners in each of the two categories: the Open Form Category and the Six Word Category.
