About the Journal




The Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME) is a peer-reviewed, editorially independent, open access journal published by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. JGME serves as the international venue to inform, engage, and guide those seeking to enhance the quality of resident and fellow (postgraduate) physicians’ education through dissemination of high-quality research to encourage dialogue about important issues in graduate medical education.

Critical, systematic inquiry is a manuscript cornerstone with:

  • An exclusive focus on graduate medical education (GME) of potential interest to at least 2 medical specialties or subspecialities responsive to JGME’s multi-specialty readership;
  • Multiple manuscript types including original research, educational innovation, reviews, brief reports, perspectives, personal essays on teaching and learning, visual media, new ideas; and
  • Topics ranging from transitions into and out of residency and fellowship training and all areas in between, such as recruitment, selection, curriculum, assessment, program evaluation, faculty development, leadership, and policy.


Published 6 times a year (February, April, June, August, October, and December) with occasional theme-based supplements, JGME is an open access journal, that does not charge authors for submissions or publication. To facilitate dissemination, authors of accepted manuscripts are invited to submit visual abstracts, to highlight key articles/topics of interest to the GME community. JGME produces a podcast, Hot Topics in MedEd, that focuses on important issues in graduate medical education, including JGME articles and authors.
