Since the appearance of Swales’ (1981, 1990) CARS model of analysis, there has been a great interest in untangling the way in which information is organized in research-process papers. In the latest years, a great number of researchers have been concerned with analyzing the rhetorical structure and the linguistic features of the canonical sections of the research article. However, little attention has been paid to analyzing the rhetorical structure of other emerging genres, as it is the case of the review article. The present study, thus, examines the rhetorical organization of information in the different sections of medical review articles written in English and proposes a template of move analysis for the three sections identified: Introduction, Development and Conclusion. The analysis was based on a corpus of thirty medical review articles published in a prestigious online journal, following conventional sampling procedures. Then, a move analysis was conducted applying the method proposed by Morales (2010). Finally, a template consisting of thirteen moves is suggested for the analysis of medical review articles written in English. The results of this study have pedagogical implications for ESP students, novice researchers, and ESP teachers.
