What’s a Story Slam?

Story Slams are events that celebrate storytelling. Participants verbally share brief stories (5-minute maximum) with an audience who vote on their favourite story. The Department of Medicine organized an event in 2017 and 2018, featuring stories that were all published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
