Scholarly Writing Seminar Series for Clinicians and Clinician Educators
March 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
One event on March 31, 2020 at 12:00 pm
IMPORTANT: A participant must attend BOTH sessions in the series.
A series for MGH clinical faculty with HMS academic appointments.
This two-part series will help clinicians improve their scholarly writing. The course will be most valuable for those who desire to improve their writing skills and productivity. Participants will learn how to:
• Clarify interests and goals
• Select a target audience for writing
• Create an outline
• Avoid obsessive perfectionism
Facilitator: Theodore Stern, MD, Ned H. Cassem Professor of Psychiatry in the Field of Psychosomatic Medicine/Consultation, HMS; Chief Emeritus of the Avery D. Weisman, MD, Psychiatry Consultation Service, Interim Director of the Center for Faculty Development, and Director of the Office for Clinical Careers, MGH; Editor-in-Chief of Psychosomatics
Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020
Time: 12:00 to 1:30 PM
This session will serve to determine what is of interest for clinicians in different disciplines and then to outline one or two clinical reports. We will model a process for turning clinical cases into educational/clinically relevant publications, with creation of components based upon questions (e.g., who, what., where, when, why, and how) and division of labor. Following this session collaborators will draft responses to the questions asked and will email them to Dr. Stern within the next 10 days.
