Biomedical and Scientific Writing: A Course for Junior Faculty

The Office of Faculty Development is accepting applications for “Biomedical and Scientific Writing: A Course for Junior Faculty.”

Excellent publications are key for junior faculty, providing the foundation for competitive funding proposals and enhancing promotion opportunities. However, writing is sometimes hard and many struggle with scholarship.

To address this need, this course is designed to significantly increase your skills in writing a research paper for submission to a peer-reviewed journal, and to strengthen your skills in giving constructive critique to your peers.

The course consists of eight weekly classes that meet for two hours (Noon-2 p.m.) January through March. The classes comprise didactic elements, small group work and class critique. During the course, each participant will write the first draft of a research paper destined for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. There will also be one session that addresses writing effective letters of recommendation.

Dates: Class will meet on Tuesdays.

Part I: Jan. 16, 23 and 30, Feb. 6

Mid-course break: no class Feb. 13 or 20

Part II: Feb. 27, March 6, 13 and 20
