Presented by Richard L. Kravitz, MD, MSPH
Professor and Co-vice Chair (Research)
Department of Internal Medicine
Director, UC Center Sacramento

Asked to describe what he did for a living, an academic colleague thought about about it for a moment and said, "I'm a scientific writer."  Without discounting the other things health sciences faculty do, writing is surprisingly central. In this workshop, Dr. Kravitz will discuss the why's and how's of academic publishing. Topics to be covered include why publish, what editors are looking for, writing tips, insights into the editorial process, and how to get attention for your work. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to review materials submitted and reviewed by the Journal of General Internal Medicine, where the instructor is co-Editor-in-Chief.
