Call for papers: Beyond Big Data to new Biomedical and Health Data Science: moving to next century precision health

We are welcoming submissions for this exciting collection with four exceptional Guest Editors. We invite manuscripts and front matter content looking at data-driven approaches for patient care with a strong focus on policy making, clinical implementation and public health importance.

Research: Racial inequalities persist in UK mental health care

In this up-to-date systematic review, Kamaldeep Bhui and colleagues show that racial inequalities in pathways to care for mental health are persistent in England and Wales, and should be considered as part of major future reforms for the Mental Health Act.

Research: Fitness to practice sanctions in UK doctors predicted by poor assessments performance

This data linkage study finds that MRCGP and MRCP(UK) performance can predict professional important outcomes and fitness to practise (FtP) sanctions in UK doctors.

Review: Insulin and obesity

A review discusses the role of insulin and obesity, arguing that independent of the initial effect of lifestyle factors, the pathway to obesity requires hyperinsulinaemia as a critical mediator in translating an unfavourable lifestyle into body weight gain.

Aims and scope

BMC Medicine is the flagship medical journal of the BMC series. An open access, open peer-reviewed general medical journal, BMC Medicine publishes outstanding and influential research in all areas of clinical practice, translational medicine, medical and health advances, public health, global health, policy, and general topics of interest to the biomedical and sociomedical professional communities. We also publish stimulating debates and reviews as well as unique forum articles and concise tutorials.
