Average Class Size: 8
Teacher: Jacob Slominski

What you'll learn in this career training:

In this class, you'll learn the ins and outs of the AMA Manual of Style and get practice editing medical copy. You'll also learn how to edit digitally, a must for medical editors. Once the class is over, you'll have my help getting your first gig, through a temp agency or independently. Editing experience or a background in science or medicine is a plus, but not essential. Many former students are now working as freelancers or staff editors, and my class is recommended by editorial directors at several medical advertising agencies as well as by MetroProof, a major temp employer of medical editors in NYC. I became a medical editor by taking a class like this one, so I promise it can be done!  

What you'll need:
  • AMA Manual of Style, 10th edition 
  • Tabs (I recommend getting two packs of Post-it 2-inch lined tabs)
  • Red pen
  • Pencil, or pen that doesn't bleed 
  • Highlighter
  • Notebook
Bring lunch, or buy food nearby.

All classes at this location

The easiest way to get here is D train to 9th Ave. My apartment is a 10-minute walk from there, or you can take the B35 bus from 9th to 7th Ave and cut the walk to 2 minutes. Make sure to check mta.info for weekend service interruptions. If the D isn't running to 9th Ave, the other options are the R train to 45th St (10 minute walk uphill) or the D/N/R to 36th (15 minute walk). Although my apartment is on the first floor, there are two short sets of steps up from the sidewalk and no ramp, so this class is unable to accommodate students in wheelchairs.

Question from Anonymous
How can a person learn about medical editing to any kind of meaningful degree in two days?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The class is not strictly only two days—it includes a binder with 20hrs of homework. Depending on how experienced you are, you may not need to do all of it, but it’s really helpful. If you already have decent reading & writing skills, medical editing is easy to learn. You need a good grasp of AMA style, experience editing medical copy to conform to AMA style, & the tools to know when & how to look up things you don’t understand. While that’s a lot to cover in two days, it's absolutely possible.
