World Medical Journal

Official Journal of the WMA Since 1954

Welcome to the electronic version of the World Medical Journal!

2014 marked the sixtieth anniversary of the appearance of the World Medical Journal (WMJ). The journal is published quarterly and it reflects the aims and activities of the World Medical Association.

It is not the task of the WMJ to publish new scientific medical research. This is clearly the function of the multitude of information available in either broad-based or specialised journals. However, there is a place for publishing overviews of trends, new areas of medical progress which may not appear in the general run of medical journals and which can increase physician's awareness of developments of which they may be unaware. It has sections on Medical Ethics and Human Rights, Medical Science, Professional Practice and Education, the Secretary General’s column, and a section on Regional and National Medical Association (NMA) News where we will try to report on regional developments and NMA initiatives or problems.

We hoped that readers will find it interesting, informative and helpful. As ever, the Editor will be pleased to consider any papers or information for publication.
