NEJM Invites Students and Residents to IT Horizons Conference

The Editor for Medical Education of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) asked me to inform my readers (2,200 daily RSS subscribers plus 1,500 visitors) that the journal is seeking applications from interested residents and students to join them in Boston from October 24-26th, 2008 to discuss the future information needs of physicians and physicians in training.

NEJM is seeking to bring together a group of visionary medical students and trainees to help NEJM push the boundaries of traditional medical publishing. We are looking for creative minds to join the editors for a weekend to explore what's possible. We anticipate a vigorous dialogue around the ideas that invited participants and other speakers share with the group.

If you are selected to join the conference:

  • We will cover the cost of round-trip coach/economy airfare to Boston from within North America or from western Europe.
  • We will cover the costs of room and board at the conference facility for your two-day stay, and transfers to and from Boston's Logan International airport.
  • You will receive a complimentary subscription to
  • You will have a chance to shape the future of NEJM, and meet members of the editorial staff.
