The Nocturnists is a physician storytelling collaborative based in San Francisco, founded on the principle that medicine is fertile ground for compelling stories. In sharing those stories, we are able to create an opportunity for a larger conversation around our patients' experiences and lives, engage in self-reflection and self-healing, and continue an essential public dialogue about what it means to be a doctor and a patient in our health care environment today.
We host quarterly storytelling events throughout San Francisco, and we are currently developing a podcast series. Eventually we hope to pilot our event in other cities. Our team consists of Emily and Ali, two young attending physicians interested in the intersection of medicine and the humanities.
