Welcome! I'm Laura Vater. 


I'm a Hematology/Oncology Fellow, mother, and writer.

I believe that patients are not problems to solve, but people to care for. That prevention should be talked about early and often. And that the mental and physical health of clinicians matters.

On this website I share a tool to support patient and clinician health: the SMILE Scale. I also share my narrative medicine and reflective writing about different aspects of patient care and medical training.


Thanks for your interest! Connect with me via social media: @doclauravater on Twitter and Instagram.
