Published since 1938 and named for one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Pharos lighthouse of Alexandria, Alpha Omega Alpha's quarterly journal publishes scholarly essays covering a wide array of nontechnical medical subjects, including medical history, ethics, and medical-related literature.
"In an age of rapidly evolving technology and forced efficiency, The Pharos continues to emphasize the artistic, the literary, and the place of music, language, and culture in medicine. Although themes may shift--now touching upon the economics or the ethics of times--humanism is the enduring content of our AΩA journal."
—Faith T. Fitzgerald, MD
The journal accepts the following types of submissions:
- Scholarly essays on nontechnical medically-related subjects, including history, literature, art, ethics, economics, health policy, and profiles of prominent persons
- Scholarly nonfiction on a medical subject
- Poetry and poetry/photography combinations
- Personal essays
