The British Columbia Medical Journal is a general medical journal providing continuing medical education with a focus on evidence-based medicine.The BCMJ provides clinical and review articles written primarily by BC physicians for BC physicians. It also contains editorials, BC medical news, book reviews, career opportunity and CME listings, physician profiles, and regular columns, such as those by the BC Centre for Disease Control and WorkSafeBC. Physicians debate medicine and medical politics in letters and longer essays.
Established in 1959, the BC Medical Journal is distributed in print 10 times per year, and operates a free, full-text, web-enhanced version, bcmj.org, to provide current BC medical news and additional content to BC physicians wherever they are, whenever they want it. Owned by Doctors of BC, the BCMJ is overseen and peer reviewed by an eight-physician Editorial Board that operates at arms-length from Doctors of BC so that it can be an open forum for debate on any topic.
