The story of the Malta Medical Students’ Association’s (MMSA) sole scientific journal – Minima Medicamenta – continues, and one thing is sure: the work of issuing it annually, in print, is shifting\ud towards increasing levels of professionalism. With a new editorial board and design team, each page\ud of this publication is now being brought in a unique style. This year, on the occasion of the 5th\ud anniversary from the official founding of this journal, a new layout has been introduced. Apart from\ud the well renown case reports, a section dedicated to literature review papers has been included for\ud the first time. The theme, however, remains the same as previous editions: Rare Disease.\ud The 2015/16 edition will bring no less than four case reports, and two literature reviews, all of\ud which have been compiled by medical students and reviewed by consultants, with the aim of raising\ud awareness about a wide range of rare conditions presenting in our country. Above all, this publication\ud is intended to act as a bridge between the pre-clinical and clinical journeys of medical school, by\ud serving as a platform that encourages medical students to improve their clinical writing skills, and\ud broaden their interest in research.peer-reviewe
