Abstract:
Background: Most medical students, at some point in their career, aspire to publish a research paper of enough significance to join the pages of the major international medical journals. At the helm of these journals are physicians renowned for their academic and research acumen; in Canada, one of these physicians is Dr. Paul Hebert. We sat down with Dr. Hebert to talk about submission tips, becoming a journal editor, and how he got the job. This feature is part of Editors in Medicine, an ongoing series within student medical journals. Other interviews will be published periodically in various student journals internationally.
