A peer-reviewed journal of the Royal College of Physicians, Clinical Medicine (ClinMed) publishes advances in general and specialist medicine and authoritative reviews on thought-provoking topics. It aims to directly improve readers’ clinical practice by providing evidence-supported and relevant learning; this will be achieved by publishing original research, guideline summaries and clinically focused reviews.  The dedicated CME section focuses on the latest developments in a specialty, with self-assessment questions for readers to attain CPD accreditation.

Published six times a year in print, with accepted articles published online ahead of print and extra online-only articles, ClinMed is an invaluable and comprehensive resource for physicians seeking high-quality, topical updates in general medicine and across the specialties. ClinMed openly invites authors to submit manuscripts reporting improvements in clinical practice; it particularly encourages submissions from trainees and early-career researchers who wish to build their publication portfolio.
