Research And PMSJ
PMSA is committed to promoting research in Pacific Islander health, and facilitating the development of research skills among our students
THE PACIFIC MEDICAL STUDENTS JOURNAL
We are delighted to formally launch the Pacific Medical Students' Journal (PMSJ) in 2017. This journal underwent a soft launch during the inaugural SHMC in 2017 when two articles were included in the SHMC Magazine. This journal has an emphasis on Pacific health with an aim to raise awareness on Pacific Islander healthcare issues for all who read it. We are absolutely delighted to introduce you to 9 spectacular articles ranging from formal research and review pieces to elective reports and reflective articles all giving unique insight into health in the Pacific Island.
We hope that all of you take inspiration because we will be opening submissions for next years journal in the coming months and we encourage you all to put pen to paper and jump on this opportunity to get some amazing work published.
Two very lucky authors will be presenting their research at the Southern Hemisphere Medical Camp every year. Make sure you come along and learn more about Pacific Island Healthcare.
