Medical Writing Workshop

Endorsed by the Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors (APAME)

Original research is the crux of modern day medicine. However, a lot of work that could have been published often does not reach the editor’s desk, and it is lack of direction, rather than the lack of interest that leads to this void.

Columbia Asia welcomes you to this workshop on medical writing where eminent editors from across the world, will guide you through every step involved in the research process, including the very first steps of publishing, i.e. choosing a research topic, to getting it published in a renowned journal.

They will skillfully tutor you in handling every hurdle that you may need to deal with. Finally, efficiently managing editor and reviewer comments will also be dealt with.

The intent of this workshop is to encourage and teach you to write and publish what you learned and inferred, because, eureka!.. knowledge shared is knowledge multiplied. It is the only way to uphold the changing health interests of the society, keep the science alive and pave the way for future medical progress.
