In this episode, guest Dr Malcolm Forbes tells the story of his scholarly project on neuroimaging in first episode psychosis (1, 2) and provides a how to guide on the systematic review process (3). With its origins in his former life as a general medical registrar, Malcolm’s project challenged conventional wisdom and shows trainees that their work can have global significance. Malcolm is joined by a full complement of Associate Trainee Editors in Michael Weightman and Bryan Bui, along with Trainee Editor Oliver Robertson and Deputy Editor Andrew Amos.
