The Program for Neurology Research & Discovery and the Office of Faculty Development are pleased to offer this workshop presented by Dr. Phillip Leventhal, Editor-in-Chief of Medical Writing.  

Through a combination of lecture and exercises, participants in this workshop will receive an introduction to medical and scientific writing for journals and grants including:

  • How to start and move forward: from problem statements to outlines to a logical text.
  • Techniques to clarify writing at a sentence, paragraph, and document level.
  • Guiding your reader with visual elements.
  • Putting these into practice through group or full-class exercises

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
