The William W. Olmsted Editorial Fellowship for Trainees is for residents and fellows in training interested in scholarly publication and editorial processes at medical journal offices.
As an Olmsted fellow, you'll learn about manuscript preparation and editing, peer review, journal production, printing and digital publishing. At the end of the fellowship, you'll complete a program evaluation and prepare a follow-up report on your experiences during and after the fellowship.
The fellowship lasts for approximately one week. During this time, the Olmsted fellow will:
- Spend two days working with the editor of Radiology in Madison, Wisconsin
- Visit Phoenix to work with the editor of RadioGraphics for one day
- Meet the RSNA publications department in Oak Brook, Illinois, and learn about the production process
- Assist the editors and attend editorial meetings during the RSNA annual meeting in Chicago
To be eligible for the Olmsted Fellowship, you must:
- Be an RSNA member
- Still be in training (resident, fellow)
- Have a record of publications in scientific and/or educational peer-reviewed journals
Each department or institution should nominate only a single candidate for the fellowship in any given year. Interested individuals should coordinate their application with their department’s administration.
One fellow is selected each year and is awarded a stipend of $3,000 to cover travel, lodging and expenses.
Application and deadlines
Applications for the Olmsted Fellowship are now closed and will reopen again in 2022. For additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
