Work Samples
 
(About.com, 5/3/2015)
I author the "Medical Treatments" department at About.com. I produce 12 slide shows and articles a month.
(F+W Media/Writer's Digest Books, 1/14/2014)
Everything you ever need to know about journalism, style, article writing, platforms, and publication. Meant for every freelancer.
(The New Physician, 3/1/2011)
How the residency match will change.
(The New Physician, 1/1/2011)
A cutting-edge, in-depth look at virtual patients.
(Pregnancy, 10/1/2010)
My wife went on bed rest with our first pregnancy. (Thankfully, everything turned out well.) This piece was picked up by Pregnancy magazine. It showcases some of my humor.
(The New Physician, 9/1/2010)
For-profit medical education is making a comeback in the United States. This piece explores the topic.
(Science Editor, 3/1/2010)
Cute piece on copyediting.
(The New Physician, 1/1/2010)
I scooped this story. TCOM, an osteopathic medical school, was considering adding on an allopathic component. This piece sparked serious debate and change--the plans were eventually scrapped. I won an Apex Award for this story
