Applicants are eligible from any specialty or subspecialty in graduate medical education (GME) programs, and through ACGME-I-accredited or any international post-medical school training program.

Qualified candidates should have:

  • An interest in medical education and academic publishing
  • Excellent writing skills and perhaps prior reviewing or editing experience

Ideally, candidates will have two or more years remaining in their GME program. The appointment would begin immediately after selection. Read the call for nominations here on the JGME website.

The JGME Editorial Board is made up of 38 graduate medical educators and researchers from a wide range of institutions and specialties. The resident editor program was established a decade ago and is expanding this year to include more residents and fellows.

"As a member of JGME's Editorial Board and an advocate for diversity in medical education scholarship, I am excited to support the call for international resident editors.

I encourage all aspiring resident editors and future medical educators and scholars to join our collaborative effort to shape the future of GME research.”
