The Jefferson Arts Organization was founded primarily to offer Jefferson students the opportunity to express themselves through art. The Jefferson Arts organization focuses on such media as art and photography, writing, and music and supports diverse activities including live readings, art exhibits and musical performances. In addition, the organization publishes Inside Out, an annual art and literary journal which showcases photography, paintings, sketches, short stories, poems and essays contributed by Jefferson students. All of these activities are designed to bring more diversity to the Jefferson community; to allow students, faculty and staff the chance to stop and reflect on their daily lives; and to provide a creative outlet from the rigors of school and work.

The Department of Medicine published the newsletter Translations.THIS PUBLICATION HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED
The name "Translations" represents a fundamental aspect of our mission: translating information from the basic science laboratory, seminal clinical trials, and outcomes research to improvements in patient care as well as student and postgraduate education. While the completion of the human genome project and technologic advances in high throughput genotyping, robotics, and the molecular biology of many human diseases have resulted in an explosion of new therapies and devices, it is often difficult to keep track of these many advances, much less identify what novel resources are available at Jefferson to help in care of the patient.
The issues of Translations will inform you about the department's ongoing research, clinical, and educational activities, so that both doctors and patients are able to take better advantage of the range of opportunities available at Jefferson.
