Authors

The Maryland MGMA Marketing Committee welcomes articles for consideration. Information presented in an article must have significance and relevance to medical practices. There are three types of articles accepted. They are: Feature Article, Informational Article and Ask an Expert. An author whose work is printed will receive a complimentary electronic copy of MediNews in which the article appears. All articles are to be submitted in MS Word or similar format to our Executive Director.

Feature Article

A feature article will appear at the start of the newsletter and have the cover photo tied into it. The article can be about personal performance, professional development or practice management. It must be no greater than two pages of text [approximately 1,200 words]. The article cannot be an explicit promotion of a company, product or service.
