A Health Professions Education Editors’ Open Letter to our Community

As editors of journals concerned with health professions education, we take very seriously the influence of our published articles on curriculum development, learner assessment and, ultimately, the quality of health care provided to our communities. As members of the International Editors Group of Health Professions Education Journals, we routinely gather at international meetings to share new ideas, voice concerns and provide support to each other as we grapple with financial, logistical, technical and political challenges faced by our journals. It is therefore appropriate that we clearly communicate our concerns about increasing risks related to current regulations and attitudes affecting international travel, global meetings and global health.
