Medical Writing: A Brief Guide for Beginners

This e-book is designed to answer all those questions that you are afraid to ask. Here’s where you start when your mentor says, “write it up!” and hands you a pile of data.
Think of this e-book as the friendly old colleague (me) down the hall with the open door. The one you ask the questions that are “too stupid” to ask your mentor. Medical Writing is designed to help you write your first paper, your first chapter, or review your first manuscript for a journal. It sprinkles in a liberal amount of general career advice as well.

It comes from a lifetime of medical writing. You may know me as the editor of The SAGES Manual, the last two editions of Chassin's, or Operative Dictations.
