Medical writing has become an unaccountable alternate subject in the curriculum of doctors. It starts from the undergraduate level where a medical student has to write some projects in the Preventive and Social medicine department. Apart from that, case summaries in the various clinical subjects begin in the final year of undergraduation. At the postgraduate level, Indian medical students have a big task in front of them in the form of a thesis. The protocol writing in the initial 3 months of the tenure seems such a daunting subject and it puts so much of pressure on the naïve mind who is mastering a particular medical field. The focus starts deviating from the learning of the clinical skills to completing the protocol writing without any specific tutorial-based guidance on the technology to write a protocol for the thesis or a complete thesis itself. Nonetheless, this is superseded by one/two compulsory research publications in the postgraduation. The increasing population in our country, increasing workload in the departments, especially surgical fields in the government hospitals, has led to an undue burden on medical students for medical writing. The complete digitalization of the dissertations has warranted a complete knowledge of the computers and writing softwares such as Microsoft word, Excel, and PowerPoint and the various plagiarism tools for an easy and errorless completion of the dissertation during the medical tenure. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Interpersonal and communication skills, Professionalism, Systems-based practice.
