Vital Signs (Student Newspaper)

Vital Signs is the official medical student newspaper of the University of Iowa. For nearly 50 years, Vital Signs has been the megaphone and soap box for medical students at UI. Writers contribute news, poetry, opinion, satire, photography, and much more. Vital Signs is now entirely online and can be accessed through our blog or Facebook account. Any medical or PA student can contribute to Vital Signs, and you are encouraged to join the editorial board if you have an interest in writing or managing Facebook/blogspot accounts. E-mail an editor for information on submitting or join the board.
