Call for Submissions: Justice, Disparities, and Meeting the Needs of Our Most Vulnerable Populations

MedEdPORTAL is actively seeking submissions that feature curricula or learning activities that address an important topic that is both timeless and timely in medical education – the care of our most vulnerable populations. We have a responsibility as educators and leaders to highlight these issues in a scholarly way through commentary, research, and advocacy.  In addition, publishing learning activities through MedEdPORTAL offers concrete solutions for training our future physicians to be attentive, knowledgeable,and proactive to how social justice, racial/ethnic/ sexual identity disparities, and geopolitical forces have deleterious effects on human health. We are launching this effort in conjunction with our sister journal Academic Medicine; please read more in Dr. Sklar’s thoughtful announcement here

Fostering a Community of Readers

MedEdPORTAL celebrates our diverse audience by promoting a community of practice centered on teaching and learning. We seek Letters to the Editor from faculty, trainees, and practitioners as commentaries on or critiques of current publications, to continue engagement on educational scholarship. We encourage letters in particular on publications related to opioid addiction, physician wellness, and diversity. Please see our submission instructions for details.
