The journal represents all those who want to engage in professional and public discussion on the important role of medical education research, and the medical humanities, in medical education. Thus, educators, students, patients, policy makers, and other stake holders are invited to contribute.
Aims and scope
RHiME is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal. To ensure national and international relevance, the journal has Advisory Board members from all around the country and the world.
RHiME aims to encourage contributions from, and discussion between, teachers and students, doctors and patients, the sick and their care- providers, and between health policy makers and policy users.
It seeks, predominantly, to explore and advance medical education research, and the evolving field of Medical Humanities; “medical humanities” is broadly defined as the application, to medical education and to medical practice, of the humanities, social sciences, and the arts.

Authors exploring the role of arts-based interventions in medical education are encouraged to submit.
