Ryan K. Lee, MD, MBA
"I had high expectations for the Hillman Fellowship because of the high caliber of the JACR. I came into the fellowship wanting to understand the logistics of medical journalism and came away with far more. In addition to getting an insider look at the logistics of medical publishing, I also learned about the complex interaction balancing the needs of the publisher and journal. The staff on both publishing and journal side are such a pleasure to work with and go above and beyond in explaining the inner workings."
Tara M. Catanzano, MD
"The Hillman fellowship is a phenomenal opportunity to pull back the curtain and understand the central tenants of medical publishing. The publisher and editors provide in-depth discussions on how articles are received, processed, reviewed, and published. Information on readership, impact factor calculation. and publication timelines are very useful in understanding the review and publication process."
