In this episode, I talk to medical writer Morgan Leafe, MD, who has recently transitioned from clinical practice as a pediatrician. She talks about some of her first projects in medical writing, as well as her interest in medical informatics, which may be of interest to some of us medical writers as a parallel “non-clinical” career. We also talk about the power of volunteering as a way of getting started in medical writing (it’s one of the most effective things you can do to make connections!).

A new version is launching soon, but if you sign up now, you’ll get access to that new version, but at the current, much discounted rate.

If you might be interested in medical editing and learning all about the AMA Manual of Style, go to learnamastyle.com. That course "Become a Freelance Medical Editor" will launch on May 29th, 2021. There, you can sign up for free cheat sheets, such as a check list about setting up shop as a freelance medical editor and also a cheat sheet that has several different types of references in AMA style that you can cut and paste as you work.
