CME website:



The Current Medical Issues journal is a quarterly (4 issues a year)  peer-reviewed publication of the CME (Continuing Medical Education) department of CMC Vellore (published by Wolters Kluwer – Medknow). It aims to provide content that is current, relevant and reliable in an Indian context, to doctors and medical professionals in peripheral centres .
This journal was started 14 years ago with mission hospital doctors in mind, and is now read by general practitioners and non-specialist doctors in other primary and secondary level centers around the country. It publishes academic material as well as opinions and practice stories from mission hospitals. The journal is also a platform for doctors in mission hospitals to publish - both academic articles (original studies, reviews, case series/reports) and opinions/stories from the mission field.
Older articles are available at
