Writing for medical journals develops physician expertise, a key requisite to practicing at the highest level. Those who write must be curious and question the status quo in order to conceptualize and develop new ideas. Articles submitted to medical journals are only accepted on a peer reviewed basis. This means they must contain ideas worthy of exposure to the practicing community, as decided by respected authorities within the field.
