Call for Applications: AJKD Editorial Internship Program 2021-22

AJKD invites applications for its Editorial Internship Program, which will provide editorial experience to nephrology fellows interested in research, education, teaching, or medical editing/writing.

AJKD Editorial Interns have the opportunity to follow manuscripts from submission to publication, gaining experience in the peer review process by using original submissions to develop skills in assessing manuscripts’ novelty, validity, and clinical relevance.
