What’s the Editor’s List?
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!

Question writing ✍️
If you’re interested in writing single best answer (SBA) questions for our new free quiz platform (https://geekyquiz.com) then we’d love for you to get involved as we build out the largest free medical question bank.
You can write and submit your questions directly on the platform (so no awkward Word documents 🎉).
Your questions will then be reviewed and published for others to answer if they meet our quality standards (make sure to read our question writing guide before submitting any questions).
You’ll get statistics on how many people are using your questions and you’ll earn various geeky achievements (we all love a nerdy badge or two). 🥇📈
If you have 5 questions accepted, we’ll provide you with a certificate as recognition 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 (a.k.a. SWAGGG). 👾
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.
Any tips for getting published?
Choose an item from the Editor’s List, send us a new idea or write an awesome single best answer question.
Explore the website and make sure that we haven’t published something similar before.
Keep the reader in mind. You’re writing for undergraduate and graduate medical students looking to pass exams efficiently, survive the first days of clinical life and gain competency for the foundation years.
