The Student Elective Competition – have you entered yet?

31 Dec, 15 | by Hemali Bedi

By Hemali Bedi

Travelling far afield for your elective? If so, we want to hear all about it. Write up your experiences into a Global Health case report and not only could you be the lucky winner of a £500 travel bursary, your article could also be included in the 2016 special edition print journal.

We’ve put together a quick guide to tell you everything you need to person with suitcaseknow.

What is a Global Health case report?

Global Health case reports should focus on:

  • the causes of disease
  • the social determinants of health
  • access to healthcare services
  • how Global Health issues affect individual lives

Global Health case reports require a comprehensive review of the relevant literature. This includes related publications published by governments and global organisations, not simply the medical literature. For more information, see our website.

What could I win?

  • A £500 travel bursary to help you attend a medical conference or event related to Global Health.
  • Your article will be published in our 2016 special edition print journal along with three runners-up.

How do I get started?

Before you begin, why not have a browse of our existing Global Health case reports collection? Be sure to check out our Instructions for Authors for guidance on patient consent, the submission process, and formatting issues such as the use of images. If you’ve never written a Global Health case report before, you may find our template useful to help get you writing.

The deadline for entries is 30th April 2016. For more information, visit our competition website or get in touch!

Introducing BMJ Case Reports 10,000 cases special edition booklet

We are pleased to announce that BMJ Case Reports has published over 10,000 online cases. And what better way to celebrate this massive milestone than by sharing our second print edition – the 10,000 cases special edition booklet.

Seema Biswas, Editor in Chief of BMJ Case Reports, comments, “As we enter this new phase, we want to highlight Global Health: improvement in health and access to healthcare for all; and to make sure that all our case reports, clinical or Global Health, include the patient’s perspective.”

Our aim is to publish cases with valuable clinical lessons, with the advantage being that we learn from real cases. We hope that this special collection of case reports will serve as a useful educational resource that supports both learning and teaching. Why not have a look and let us know what you think? We’d love to hear your feedback.

We would like to thank all of our authors and contributors, and we look forward to welcoming many more cases in the days to come.
