As residents, you are a pillar of academic medicine. Your scholarship drives the practice of medical education forward. The AAMC aims to advance the work of all those engaged in improving academic medicine and bringing together the medical school and teaching hospital community through the following opportunities that are available to residents.

Academic Medicine

A peer-reviewed journal published by the AAMC that serves as an international forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and strategies to address the major challenges facing the academic medicine community as it strives to carry out its missions in the public interest.

The journal’s areas of focus include education and training issues across the continuum; health policy as it relates to education, research, and clinical care; institutional policy and management of medical schools; alignment of the health professions workforce with societal needs; the culture and environment of academic medicine; the intersection of academic medicine’s multiple missions; and advancing the field of health professions education research and scholarship.

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis.

The Academic Medicine Advancing Trainees as Leaders and Scholars (ATLAS) initiative aims to engage health professions learners in the scholarly publishing process and feature their voices more regularly in the journal. By engaging trainees as readers and authors, the editors hope to help create the next generation of leaders and scholars.

MedEdPORTAL®

An online, MEDLINE-indexed, open-access journal of teaching and learning resources in the health professions published by the AAMC in partnership with the American Dental Education Association. MedEdPORTAL publications are stand-alone teaching or learning modules that have been implemented and evaluated with medical or dental trainees or practitioners. Each submission is peer-reviewed using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of educational scholarship. 

MedEdPORTAL operates under a highly unusual diamond open-access model, which means that there are no fees to submit to, publish in, or read the journal.

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis.
