DIGITAL MEDIA FELLOWSHIP

The Journal of Hospital Medicine (JHM) Digital Media Fellowship is a unique opportunity for chief residents, hospital medicine fellows, and junior faculty (e.g. Assistant Professor) to engage and participate with leaders in the field of hospital medicine. As the use of social media has increased over the years, academic journals have had to engage their readership and produce content to fit within these alternative outlets. Recognizing that there are few formal occasions to acquire experience with both academic medicine and social media, JHM has set out to provide a program to fill this opportunity gap.

The Digital Media Fellowship is a 1-year program (starting each July) that is designed to give an individual a unique experience that will enhance their career in academic hospital medicine while also developing their skills and experience with social media as a professional tool. Structured as a distance-learning program, the fellowship allows the Fellow to continue their local clinical and professional responsibilities while still allowing them the opportunity to work with a national leader in hospital medicine. Regular communication and interactions take place through telephone calls, emails, and videoconferencing. Fellows will be paired with the Deputy Digital Media Editors for guidance, mentorship, and coaching in the position.

Ideal candidates will have some experience in social media, be able to self-manage, and complete work on regularly scheduled deadlines. While the fellowship has structured activities built into it, there may also be opportunities to create other original content and/or complete a research project that pertains to social media and academic medicine.

EDITORIAL FELLOWSHIPS

The Journal of Hospital Medicine (JHM) Editorial Fellowship is designed to formally introduce Chief Residents, Hospital Medicine Fellows, and junior faculty (i.e. Assistant Professor) to the peer review, editorial, and academic writing process. Recognizing that there are few formal occasions to acquire experiences with these activities, JHM has created a 1-year editorial fellowship designed to close this opportunity gap. The overall purpose of this program is to provide experiences that will enhance the Fellows’ career in academic hospital medicine and scientific publication, while developing their skills and enhancing social and professional networks that could lead to future participation as a peer reviewer or editor at a scientific journal.

Each Fellow will be paired with an editorial mentor, who is a current JHM Deputy- or Associate Editor. Structured as a distance-learning program, the fellowship allows the Fellow to continue their local clinical and professional responsibilities while still allowing them the opportunity to work with a national leader in hospital medicine. Regular communication and interactions take place through telephone calls, emails, and videoconferencing. Attempts are made to pair the Fellow with mentors who have similar interests and/or background.

Each academic year, 3-5 candidates are chosen. Ideal candidates will desire a career in academic hospital medicine with an interest in any of the following: medical education, quality improvement, public policy, or clinical research. Candidates should be able to highlight projects, programs, curricula, or research that illustrates their dedication and desire to remain in hospital medicine. While not mandatory, candidates with previous authorship or publications are preferred. Because of the distance-learning structure, candidates should be self-motivated and be able to work independently.

By working closely with the JHM editorial staff, it is the hope that participation in this program will assist in the growth, development, and sustainable advancement of individuals’ hospital medicine career. For more information and the application, click here.
