The UBC Medical Journal is now accepting submissions for the Spring 2018 issue. The theme of the issue is Medicine of Youth!
In our day to day lives, we often hear phrases like “youth are the future.” If this is indeed true, investing in the future means investing in the lives of young people of today. Undeniably, the health and well-being of youth will be central to all of this. Our upcoming UBCMJ issue aims to explore the challenges and opportunities in health care that affect young people. This encompasses many complex topics like aging, mental health, exercise and nutrition, health education, and numerous other issues in pediatric medicine. Though broad in scope, this evolving field on medicine is one that will spark discussion between medical trainees, clinicians, and the public alike.
Submissions may fall into one of the following categories: Academic Research, Reviews, Case and Elective Reports, News and Letters, and Commentaries. We also accept submissions that do not fall into this theme.
The submission deadline of our Spring 2018 issue is October 14, 2017.
Submissions can be made via our online submission system here: ubcmj.med.ubc.ca/submissions/
To encourage and recognize high quality writing, the UBCMJ Distinguished Writing Award, including a $250 honorarium, will be presented to the authors of the strongest article submitted in the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 issues.
