BMC Medical Education has recently been accepted for indexing by Thomson Reuters and is on course to receive its first impact factor in June 2011. The journal has also been accepted for coverage in Current Contents. Full details on indexing of all BioMed Central titles is available from our website.
BMC Medical Education publishes articles on a range of topics relating to the training of healthcare professionals, including undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing education. It has a special focus on curriculum development, evaluations of performance, assessment of training needs and evidence-based medicine.
The journal has just begun operating under an enhanced editorial structure with the appointment of academic Editors to head up different sections of the journal. We are proud to be working with such esteemed scientists and we look forward to other journals in the BMC series adopting this editorial structure in the near future.
