Academic Medicine Medical Spanish Writing Fellowship Orientation

August 19, 2022 to August 20, 2022
This online 1-2 year fellowship will introduce a medical student/resident/fellow/faculty member to academic medical writing. The fellows that will be in the program have very few publications in medical education journals. This is usually a result of not having the knowledge, strategies, and support to complete and get publications. This fellowship will foster learning and opportunities to receive publications specifically in MedEdPORTAL.

Target Audience

Medical student/resident/fellow/faculty members interested in academic medical writing.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Create opportunities to publish in medical education journals;
  • Apply components and best practices for submitting a project to MedEdPORTAL;
  • Work in a team to submit a Medical Spanish project to MedEdPORTAL.
