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 online in six issues per year, with accepted articles published online ahead of each issue, 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.
