Who can get involved?

We’re always looking for great medical educators, both current students, and qualified doctors.

As hard as we try we just can’t create content fast enough to satisfy the insatiable appetite of the worldwide Geeky Medics audience (they’re a hungry lot!).

That’s where you can heroically step in and save the day!


What will I write?

Choose an item from the Editor’s List. That’s where you’ll find a list of content that we’re looking for right now or in the coming months. Or, send us a new idea!

Write a blog post, sharing your experiences, cases, and reflections which you feel would be helpful, exciting or inspiring for current students, prospective students or those already practising (read more here).

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.

What do I get out of this?

A super geeky 8-bit themed certificate that you can include in your portfolio (and, references too, should you need them). We recently had a contributor let us know that it had been a talking point in their core surgical interview! Also if you get 10 questions published on the Geeky Medics Quiz Platform you get some exclusive Geeky Medics stickers 👾.

What’s more, if you create something of value there’s the potential for it to help hundreds of thousands of other students. That’s the kind of thing that really motivates us here at Geeky Medics.
