Welcome to Publishing Division

Spectrum Publishers has been involved in publishing medical journals for minority premed students, medical students, residents, new physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals for over 20 years. We are dedicated to producing publications to inform minorities of the most current information available in the healthcare industry. Our publications include: The Journal for Minority Medical Students, Keepsake and The Young Scientist. The publications inform, provide guidance, and inspire the nation's minority medical and premed students, as well as help medical schools and research programs. Through Spectrum's publications, our nation's medical schools are able to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine.

Our Mission


To bring information, guidance, and inspiration to the nation's minority medical, premed and science students, as well as help medical schools and research programs increase the number of underrepresented minorities so we can eliminate health disparities.

Editorial Philosophy


Each quarterly issue of The Journal for Minority Medical Students (The Journal) explores the most prominent issues facing minority medical students. In each issue, readers will find:

  • The latest developments in the training and education of minority medical students and residents
  • Conversations with the deans of the major medical schools
  • Interviews with minority role models
  • Reports from the nation's capital on health related legislation
  • The unique woman's perspective on medical issues
  • Special Report, the "journal with the The Journal" which focuses on those thematic concerns which must be addressed by the medical community.
