Biomedical Odyssey Trainee Blog 2015
Johns Hopkins Medical



Describe your blog.
We worked with trainees at Johns Hopkins Medicine to setup a blog for and written by trainees.

Judges said:
The content can only be produced by the trainees living the daily life of a trainee. Excellent and efficient way to create a forum with authentic, relevant content.

What prompted you to take this on?
We wanted to create a platform where students and trainees have a voice to share their experience with other potential trainees.

What was the most successful part of the project?
The quality and enthusiasm of the recruits - and that it is now mostly self-sustaining.

What is one thing you learned from this experience?
Given a platform and space, scientists and doctors-in-training have truly amazing stories to tell and will find creative ways to tell them.
