This is where you’ll find a regularly updated list of content that we’re looking for in the coming months.
Writing content from this list will increase your chances of getting published on the site.
However, if you have an idea for something that isn’t listed here and isn’t already on the site you may submit your idea via the pitch form, just be sure to clearly outline your objective. We can’t wait to hear from you!
If there’s something you’d like us to add to the Editor’s list for other community members to work on, simply make a suggestion via the button below.
We’re building out a library of brief articles covering clinical signs (e.g. splinter haemorrhages). Each article would include a description and image/video of the sign. The article would then also discuss how to elicit the sign (if relevant) and also what the clinical sign might indicate (e.g. the associated disease/underlying pathophysiology). I’ve included a few examples of clinical signs we’d like people to write about below (however this list certainly isn’t exhaustive). If you have other suggestions of signs (of which there are many), just let us know via the pitch button at the top of the page.

Question writing ✍️
If you’re interested in writing single best answer (SBA) or multiplechoicequestions for our new freequizplatform (https://geekyquiz.com) then we’d love for you to get involved as we build out the largestfreemedicalquestionbank.
You can write and submit your questions directly on the platform (so no awkward Word documents ).
You’ll get statistics on how many people are using your questions and you’ll earn various geekyachievements tied to milestones on the platform.
You can generate a personalised PDF certificate that includes statistics on how many contributions you’ve made, how many times your questions have been answered by others and where in the world your questions are having the greatest educational impact. This certificate can be used as evidence of your contribution to the community and overall dedication to medical education.
If you have 10 questions accepted, we’ll send out some exclusive Geeky Medics stickers.
If you have 20 questions accepted, we’ll send out some Geeky Medics lanyards (because we know you and your friends don’t have enough already).
Please read our guidelines before writing questions, as this will allow you to structure your content appropriately and increase the chances of your questions being published.
