Apply to Be a NEJM Editorial Fellow


The NEJM invites applications for three one-year, full-time, paid editorial fellowships beginning in July 2018 from medical professionals at any career stage. Applications are due by August 15, 2017.

The editorial fellows review and edit Images in Clinical Medicine submissions, organize the Clinical Decisions series and write the Quick Takes under the supervision of senior editors. The fellows also moderate commenting at, review topic tagging for the NEJM website, write blog posts for NEJM Resident 360 and contribute to other Journal work according to their skills and inclinations. We would like one fellow with an interest in medical education to take the lead on managing NEJM Resident 360,  keeping Rotation Prep current, facilitating discussions, and working with an editorial team to generate new ideas and content as needed. The fellows also participate in the day-to-day editorial activities of the Journal, including attending the editorial meetings.

We are looking for candidates who have good medical judgment, can communicate that judgment in good written English, and can work independently. Applicants are not required to be U.S. citizens, but successful candidates must reside in the Boston area for the duration of the fellowship. Please send curriculum vitae and a letter of interest to Pam Miller, 10 Shattuck St., Boston, MA 02115 or by August 15, 2017.
