Call for Papers

The AMA Guides Newsletter invites you to submit articles for potential publication. These may focus on any aspect of your work as an independent medical evaluator (IME), including assessment of relevant clinical issues, impairment, causation, apportionment, and/or workability.

Have you had a recent case for which you researched issues and provided an excellent discussion? It might be a sound basis for an article. Publishing an article helps others and also demonstrates your expertise.
