About this Service

If you're looking for a job and you like working with words, I'm teaching an online course in medical editing over eight Saturdays in May and June (May 4, 11, 18, 25, and June 1, 8, 15, 22), from 2 to 5 pm ET each day.

I've been a freelance medical editor for over a decade. It's been flexible, high-paying, and has supported my performance career and my family. I began this class as a favor to friends, and my students' success has kept me teaching.

If you're a meticulous reader and a clear, able writer, you'll do wonderfully. Editing experience or a background in science or medicine is a plus but not essential.

This course offers thorough instruction in copyediting, AMA style, digital markups, fact checking, and essential online tools, plus two full textbooks and an extensive course packet. You'll also receive individual feedback on your edits, a roadmap to getting started in the field, and ongoing support after the class ends.

The class costs $500 and will be capped at 15 students. Many students find work as freelancers or staff editors, and my class is recommended by editorial directors at several medical communications agencies as well as by Metroproof, a major staffing agency for editors in NYC.

Check out my website for details or email me to connect. We can also chat by phone if you like. I'm happy to help you figure out if this class is right for you!
