Apply to Be an NEJM Editorial Fellow

Posted by • June 14th, 2016

The NEJM invites applications for three one-year, full-time, paid editorial fellowships beginning in July 2017 from medical professionals at any career stage. Applications are due by August 15, 2016.

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 Insights posts for the Now@NEJM blog, 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, a new website and discussion platform for residents — keeping the 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. To apply, please send curriculum vitae and a letter of interest to Pam Miller, 10 Shattuck St., Boston, MA 02115 or by August 15, 2016.

For more insight on the NEJM fellowship experience, see the article by Dr. Terry Schraeder, a former NEJM fellow, “NEJM Fellowship: The Ultimate Journal Club,” in Science Editor. Although written 10 years ago, it remains applicable to today’s fellowship.

  3. I think working as an editorial fellow with the prestigious NEJM will be a good fit of my career as ophthalmologist and I aspire to be considered for this position.
