I am very happy that the Medical Humanities and Medical Education group at the University College of Medical Sciences today announced the launch of 
Research and Humanities in Medical Education (RHiME)' 

The Journal has already started accepting papers. The website of the Journal is:

I  hope that eventually  this Journal can be the Official Journal of all Medical Humanities Activities in our country!

I would urge the members her to sub=it suitable publications and see the that journal takes off brilliantly.

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. To name a few- Paul Lazarus (Past President, Association of Medical Humanities), David Elpern, John Sullivan, Rebecca Garden, Ravi Ramakantan, P Ravi Shankar, Tejinder Singh, Rakesh Biswas, Vinay Kumar, Vinay Rajput, BV Adkoli, Radha Ramaswamy, and Vasumathi Sriganesh.

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.

The Editorial Board invites authors to submit work relating to Medical Education, Bioethics, and Medical Humanities (including, but not limited to, History of Medicine, Narrative Medicine, Patient Stories, Graphic Medicine, Theater of the Oppressed, Disability Studies, and Poetry). Authors exploring the role of arts-based interventions in medical education are encouraged to submit. 

The first editorial raises the question - Why Medical Humanities?

This is absolutely great. There was a dire need for a specialised journal on the subject.
I am sure it would do lots of good to the medical education and profession. More so because of the kind of group that has come together to found it.
I wholeheartedly support this initiative and hope that it would strive to keep it independence and open access status. My best wishes.

Thank you so much for your kind wishes and support.

I thank Dr Ramakantan for adding me in the group. Its so nice to hear words of encouragement from Dr Jesani. I would like to add that though the journal is founded by MHG UCMS, its 'our' journal. Our story is exactly like that of KEM where there is no dearth of people interested in MH but they are either working in isolation or there is no common platform to share and reflect on those experiences. We are doing art-based interventions in our setting, our teaching, our clinics but we do not share or report this. We hope, that RHiME will allow contributors to provide a national platform to share their innovations and provide learning and learning to a larger audience.

At last NCHPE in Mumbai, there was a pre-conference workshop on 'Role of dramatics in education' as well as film screening by MH Cell of KEM. We need more of such interactions and collaborations. Rather than adopting the western model, we should work on our own Indian-ised version. i would like to quote Dr Navjeevean Singh from his IJME article:

"Students entering professional medical education in India are disadvantaged by the lack of basic education in the humanities. In this essay I attempt to examine the reasons for this void as also to share my personal experiences and efforts to restore a balance. To keep the avenues of inquiry open, I refrain from offering solutions or recommendations. Instead, fresh thinking in the Indian cultural context is advocated."

RHiME is about you, me and us. Lets debate, lets collaborate!
