American Family Physician is announcing a call for applications for the next Jay Siwek* Medical Editing Fellowship to begin in June 2023. It is designed to provide insight into the field of medical journalism, with the goal of adding or enhancing a skill set for career diversification or advancement. This is a one-year remote fellowship with weekly virtual meetings and possibly in-person meetings at family medicine conferences.
*_Jay Siwek, MD, AFP Editor Emeritus, served for 30 years as the editor of American Family Physician and is responsible for its transformation from a “magazine” into an evidence-based, scholarly—but practical—clinical resource for family physicians. During his tenure, he launched the first AFP Medical Editing Fellowship, in which AFP’s current editor-in-chief, Sumi Sexton, MD, participated.
