Notes is on the lookout for student contributors. If you're interested in medico-legal, social or ethical issues in health – or just want to tell your peers about your hopes, fears and experiences as a medical student – share your story with us and you may see it published in the next issues of our quarterly journal.

Why write?

Getting articles published is a useful addition to your e-portfolio and your CV.

It gives you a chance to reflect and expand on topics that are important to you. In our last issue, MDU member and second year student Katie Faulkner weighed up the pros and cons of opt-in organ donation systems.

If you're interested in health education and academia, getting your work published will help you develop your voice and give you excellent experience in writing for different types of publications.

It's also a great way to share your experiences with our student membership of more than 35,000 undergraduates. For example, we've featured elective stories from Saint Lucia, Australia, India and the US – and we're always eager to see more.

Get in touch

If you want to see your work featured in the next issue of Notes, send your ideas and contact details to editor@themdu.com or fill out the form on our website.

Share your elective story, tell us about a topic you're passionate about, or let us know what it's like being a student where you are.

If your story is chosen for publication, we'll also send you a gift to say thank you. Full details will be announced on our Facebook page in the coming weeks.
