Your submission should be your final draft. I will not have time to revise, edit, return, and then re-read multiple drafts of your article. I don’t mind making minor corrections or formatting the article to fit the site’s theme, but I don’t have hours to spend endlessly editing. Before submitting, edit your article for these things:
1. Personal finances
2. Practice management
3. Specialist series
This is a series of articles written by specialists for specialists. The goal with this series is to offer recommendations that are germane to a particular specialty but which may not be applicable to medical professionals more broadly. For example, what is relevant to clinical practice as a pediatrician may not apply to a general surgeon or a psychiatrist. Articles submitted for this series should be written about your own specialty, for current or aspiring members of your specialty. Click here for a list of the specialties highlighted in the Specialist Series. If you don’t see your specialty in this list, let me know and I’ll create it for you. Here are suggestions for article submission in this series.

Reviews of books, podcasts, blogs, websites, and other publications that are relevant to our audience. See my Resources page for a list of the publications I have posted. If you don’t see a review of one of those resources, you can submit a review (500-1,000 words) for them. If you know of an outstanding resource that isn’t already on that list, feel free to write a review of it and send it to me for consideration. Please don’t submit reviews for your own publications.
