Atrium is published by the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities approximately every nine months. Each issue focuses on a different theme related to these disciplines, but each contributor explores the theme in different, thought-provoking ways. The publication of Atrium is currently on a temporary hiatus.

Individual subscriptions for the publication are free for clinicians, scholars, and students.
