Attending weekly editorial meetings allowed a unique insight into how clinical research is conducted and critically appraised. Evaluating clinical images refreshed and improved by knowledge of internal medicine and writing for NEJM Resident 360 taught me how to develop research summaries in the context of current clinical practice. Whether you’re primarily interested in clinical research, resident education or medical writing, this editorial fellowship will allow you to develop your skillset and learn new ones.”
