Easiest Research Paper Topic Ideas for Medical Science in 2021

A subsidiary branch of science that includes the study of diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of a disease or condition is known as medical science. 

Medical science is a complex subject including many interdisciplinary subjects including human health, clinical science, immunology, pathology, microbiology, genetics, cardiology, Medicines and forensic science etc. 

I am from a medical background, not exactly but kind of! What I know about medical science is that it’s a subject that includes the study of

  • Disease or biological pathway or problem
  • Origin of disease 
  • Cause of the disease and its negative effect on one’s health
  • Its overall effect on the population 
  • Diagnostic options 
  • Cure and treatment options 
  • Management strategies

It’s solely a research field that includes pure, experimental and real wet lab work. So publishing a research paper or original work is very important for the researcher, medical practitioner, or student.  

In the present article, I will give you a brief idea about several research paper topics around which you can write a research paper and publish it. For that, I will structure the article in various subjects that are commonly included in medical science, topics that are brilliant to use and ideas for research papers. 

Stay tuned, 

Subjective vise research paper topic ideas: 

Epidemics and Pandemics: 

These two words are popular and common for us; we have faced many Pandemics and Epidemics every year and since the 17th century. But unfortunately, the COVID-19 and Swine Flu Pandemics are well known. 

So these are two hot and trending topics around which one can write an excellent, data-driven, statistically proven and experimentally perfect research paper. Moreover, let me tell you as less knowledge is present, the chances of getting published are higher too. 

Here are some of the fantastic ideas that can be used; 

  • How Pandemics and Epidemics are different 
  • H1N1 pandemic vs H1N1 Epidemics- which one was worse! 
  • COVID-19 Pandemics and Human Rights 
  • Testing techniques for COVID-19 and accuracy of results 
  • History of Pandemics and epidemics
  • How to manage epidemic or pandemics- preparation for common people.

Infectious disease:

Yet another trending topic is infectious diseases like the COVID-19, swine flu or common flu. Let’s take an example of COVID-19; 

  • Discussing possible reasons for spreading Coronavirus. 
  • Effect of COVID-19 on mental health
  • Economic crisis during the COVID-19 
  • Comparing different testing facilities for COVID-19
  • Positive role of NGOs during COVID-19 
  • How doctors’ and nurses life are affected during the COVID-19 situation 

Note you can design these topics for the H1N1 or common flu infection as well, replace the COVID-19 and use H1N1, instead.


Healthcare is a subsidiary medical science field that includes the strategies for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, cure and management of a particular disease. Common research topics are like, 

  • How to improve the healthcare system 
  • What are the loopholes in the existing healthcare system?

  • Cancer 

Common research paper topic ideas are like, 

  • How to manage a disease

Wrapping up:

Medical science, health care and public health have infinite topics and opportunities for writing research papers, here are just some examples, you can take an idea to write your own.

If you are a researcher, definitely publishing a research article will be your priority to survive and grow in the field, however, note that does not try to spread fake data and knowledge, use existing literature, topics and research to improve yours.

Also, keep in mind, do not try to copy others; plagiarism is not recommended which rejects your paper as well as ruins your reputation.

We are planning a whole series to write articles on every single topic in upcoming times.
