Writing for Mentor Magazine is a pivotal opportunity for aspiring doctors to distinguish themselves and demonstrate their research skills. As a national publication, Mentor Magazine provides a platform to showcase your intellectual prowess and passion for medicine to a wide audience. By contributing to this esteemed publication, you solidify your commitment to evidence-based practice and showcase your ability to critically analyse scientific literature. Medical schools highly value candidates who exhibit strong research skills, as it reflects a dedication to staying updated with advancements in the field and a commitment to providing the best patient care. This experience sets you apart from other applicants, highlighting your ability to think critically, communicate effectively, and contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of medicine. It demonstrates your proactive approach to seeking knowledge and your potential to make a meaningful impact as a future doctor. By becoming a published writer in Mentor Magazine, you showcase your research skills and position yourself as a standout candidate on the path to a successful medical career.

When considering the path to becoming a doctor, aspiring students often seek opportunities to showcase their research skills. While the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a valuable endeavor, it is important to explore alternative avenues such as writing for the Mentor Magazine. While medical schools typically require some evidence of research, the EPQ does not receive extra weighting in the application process. Moreover, the EPQ demands a significant time commitment, often stretching beyond the allocated study period. Conversely, writing an article for the Mentor Magazine offers a more streamlined and efficient path to achieving similar learning outcomes. Not only does this allow students to showcase their research skills, but it also grants them the unique opportunity to be published. This distinction sets them apart from the multitude of students pursuing EPQs, which have become increasingly popular and even mandatory in some schools. By choosing to contribute to the Mentor Magazine, aspiring doctors can demonstrate their research acumen in a more concise timeframe while simultaneously gaining the added advantage of a published article, making their application truly stand out.

Writing for Mentor Magazine is a straightforward and rewarding process that allows you to share your insights with a wide audience. The submission guidelines provide clear instructions on how to format your article, ensuring a professional and readable final product. To get started, you can submit your article idea to the magazine’s email: mentormagazine@medicmentorfamily.org. Once your idea is confirmed, you will create a detailed plan outlining your article’s agenda, structure, sources, and length. After receiving feedback on your plan, you can proceed to write your first draft and submit it within 14 days. The editors will provide comments and suggestions for revisions, engaging in a collaborative back-and-forth process to polish your article. Following the finalization of your work, it will undergo a peer review process by healthcare professionals. Once approved, your article will be published in a Mentor Magazine issue, with options for online or printed copies. Throughout the process, the editors may make small spelling and grammar changes, but significant alterations will require your consultation. By following the submission guidelines, maintaining a polite attitude, and responding to feedback, you can confidently write for Mentor Magazine and share your valuable insights with a wider audience.
