With the support of a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, he wrote Diva (1999). He is a recipient of the Annual Achievement Award from the National Hispanic Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Pushcart Prize, and he has served as Visiting Writer at Amherst College, the University of Illinois, Champagne-Urbana, and Brandeis University. Dr. Campo has lectured widely, with recent appearances at the Lannan Foundation, the Library of Congress, the 92nd Street Y, and other prestigious venues.

His newest collection of poetry, Landscape with Human Figure, was published in April 2002, and won the Gold Medal from ForeWord in poetry. In August of 2003, W.W. Norton published The Healing Art: A Doctor's Black Bag of Poetry, new essays on poetry and healing.
