The University of Ottawa Journal of Medicine (UOJM) is a peer-reviewed journal published by graduate and medical students of the Faculty of Medicine. The UOJM is the only bilingual institutional medical journal in Canada, welcoming high-quality submissions in English or French. Accepted articles include original research, reviews and clinical practice, news and commentaries, case and elective reports, and interviews. The UOJM is currently accepting submissions for our upcoming Spring 2019 Issue 9.1: Medical Innovations.
Every year, ever-curious physicians and scientists are revolutionizing the study and practice of medicine: from breakthroughs in diagnostic and imaging software to multinational drug trials and transformative therapies that are fundamentally revolutionizing how diseases are managed. For instance, in the past decade alone, society has been witness to a paradigm shift in how medicine fights back against invading cancer cells, how statistics can predict the course of a disease prior to its first symptom, how artificial intelligence can be used for image-recognition in radiology, and how surgeons can use wireless networking to perform operations from across the Atlantic. This innovative spirit is what drives patient care and what will inspire future individuals to pursue a career in healthcare.
Issue 9.1 of the UOJM is therefore intended to explore all those innovative and passionate medical minds who constantly push boundaries and tirelessly strive to improve the lives of those around them. The submission deadline for our Spring issue is March 1, 2019 at 11:59PM. High-quality writing will be recognized with an honorarium award. Submissions can be made online and questions can be directed to email@example.com.
