"This year has proven extremely busy and quite the challenge for us all at the journal. As life in the UK shifts toward a new normal of living with COVID, and the pandemic rages on across the globe, we have begun to reflect on all that has changed since 2020.
We find ourselves dealing with new challenges in delivering healthcare and healthcare education. This topic is at the centre of our current issue, focusing on medical education in 2022. In line with our aim to publish high-quality student research, which is typically underrepresented in medical journals, our current issue features five original research articles."
