Event Description

Overview:

In this webinar, Hope will present the lessons she's learned over her career as a scientific and medical writer and editor. By identifying simple solutions to common problems, early career scientists and medical researchers will have tools to improve their ability to write, edit, and organize their manuscripts, grants, and presentations, and ultimately increase their academic and research productivity.

To equip researchers with the most contemporary practices in medical and science writing, the program outlines:

The importance of word choice to break the monotony of repetition and make the content more compelling
Contemporary term usage, to shift away from using the shorthand and antiquated terms that scientists and physicians use to quickly communicate in less structured types of writing
How best to convey one's argument by simply understanding and modifying how sentences are structured
How---and why---to write with the audience in mind, especially in a world where our research reaches members of a global audience at different career stages
Ways to demystify and approach the writing process, by knowing how to prepare, where to start, and when to revise

Why should you Attend:

This webinar is geared toward early career investigators (PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty) and their department heads.

After years of education and planning to become a research scientist, some early career investigators might find that their writing skills are limiting their ability to publish their research, receive funding for their work, and pursue the careers they had envisioned. For some, the writing style that they used to complete their PhDs seems cumbersome, difficult to read, and obfuscating. Some early career researchers question the quality of the writing style that they learned from their mentors, especially if it's unnatural to write and difficult to read.

Other early career investigators, after receiving rejected manuscripts and unfunded grants, might lose confidence in their writing, not know how to improve their writing, or find themselves unable to continue or even start new writing projects. This fun and informative program is designed to help researchers at any level improve their writing so they may fund their research, publish their results, and ultimately develop and provide innovative treatment options for patients.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Contemporary Usage & Word Choice
Sentence Structure
The Writing Process

Who Will Benefit:

Any medical researcher that writes to publish and to win grants
MDs
PhDs
Early career researchers
Postdoctoral fellows
Junior faculty
Statisticians
Department chairs
