Medical School Launches Student-Run, Peer-Reviewed Journal

The journal’s founders said that they hope that the launch of the Review will inspire similar student-run, peer-reviewed journals at other universities.

“The work published and the editorial choices made by the students will offer a window into who they are and what matters to them,” Oriol said.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly identified one of the schools that will oversee the Harvard Medical Student Review. In fact, the Dental School will join the Medical School and the School of Public Health in overseeing the publication. The article also incorrectly stated the number of years two of the founders of the Harvard Medical Student Review have studied at the Medical School. In fact, both Noor M.R. Beckwith and Jay Kumar are second-year students.
