CanadiEM’s Editorial Board is composed of a leadership team and section-specific editors. All editors, authors, and contributors to CanadiEM contribute on a volunteer basis. All contributions to CanadiEM undergo a rigorous vetting process that involves review and copy-editing from one or more editors. Most medical pieces are also reviewed by an independent physician. When available prior to publication. These reviews are published openly at the bottom of each post.

If you would like to contribute to CanadiEM get more information here and/or contact one of our editors. If you are an attending physician we are always in need of reviewers for our medical pieces. Please contact our Medical Concept Section Editors if you are interested in assisting.
