Call for Submissions 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 Fall 2019 Issue 9.2: Inner-City and Rural Medicine.
Medical practice is impacted by a multitude of physiological, personal, and social factors—not limited to where a patient lives. Where we live influences how we grow, where we go to school, what we eat, where we work, what we value, and ultimately, how healthy we are. Understanding the nuances that contribute to rural and inner-city healthcare needs, including access to medical resources, social assistance programs, patient education initiatives, and mental health support, will help to ensure that healthcare is customized to the needs of patients living in urban and rural environments. UOJM issue 9.2 will review the overlapping and distinct features that contribute to inner-city and rural medical practice with the hope of inspiring young researchers and clinicians to always be mindful of how societal and environmental differences are important factors in personalized and patient-specific healthcare.
The submission deadline for our Fall issue is September 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Artwork With the upcoming release of UOJM 9.2, we are looking for creative artwork to be featured on the cover of our issue! Submissions must fit with the theme of ‘Inner-City and Rural Medicine’ and may be drawn by hand or digitally. PDF files are preferred but not required. Artwork submissions can be emailed to email@example.com by September 1st, 2019!
