Welcome to the [updated 2014] official AJPM blog

April 30, 2014

As the current resident editor of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM), it is with great pleasure that I am tasked with reigniting the official AJPM blog. The AJPM fellowship/resident editorship rotation for preventive medicine residents (PMRs) at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and the home of the AJPM editorial office has just been launched. Thus, I and the editorial team of the AJPM are beta testing this rotation! One of the experiences we will have (for the duration of the rotation, which varies) is to take a leading role in the AJPM blog, via writing weekly blog and post-blog articles.

ImageThe goals of the AJPM blog, which is currently PMR-led, are multiple:

  1. To provide a platform for PMRs all over the country to discuss their experiences in their respective residency programs. We plan to conduct additional activities to improve outreach to other PMR programs to hopefully increase resident, residency director, and resident alumni participation and contribution to the blog.
    Specifically, based on my own conversations with fellow PMRs, we welcome PMR-contributions discussing experiences with their rotations, particularly ones that are not necessarily program or city/state specific. Thus, national and international rotations are of great interest. Websites exist (e.g., http://www.globalmedicine.org/ GMN/residentsection.htm) that discuss potential organizations that could provide PMR rotations, but actual resident experiences in such rotations are, to my knowledge, lacking. I will certainly describe my own experience at the AJPM Fellowship rotation come the end of May.
  2. To identify and post job openings, career opportunities, new rotation sites, grant opportunities, etc…
  3. To provide a forum to network with fellow PMRs and/or preventive medicine investigators for potential research collaboration.
  4. Last but not least, to provide a platform for residents to talk about miscellaneous things related to their life as a resident in preventive medicine and/or after graduation from their program.

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always helpful to read content from other writers and practice a little something from
    their web sites.
