    MDCalc Fellows and Junior Fellows

    MDCalc Fellows and Junior Fellows are residents and medical students, respectively, who are passionate about EBM and interested in supporting MDCalc’s mission to provide evidence-based decision support to doctors at the point-of-care in an innovative digital format.

    The program focuses on evidence-based medicine, specifically with clinical decision and prediction tools, and engages the resident longitudinally over a period of 2 years, culminating in a final project to be developed and designed by the Fellow and their director.

    The MDCalc Fellows program was designed with input from US residency program directors and fulfills the academic requirement for most residency programs. Participants are expected to spend approximately 10 hours of intensive work on a final project, with engagement throughout the year as needed.

    Examples of final projects include:

    • Writing content for an MDCalc calculator (selected reviews will be published in one of our PubMed-indexed peer-reviewed partner journals).
    • Pitching and authoring an article for Paging MDCalc.
    • Authoring a review for another of MD Aware’s EBM websites such as
    • Other academic projects to be designed by the Fellow.

    Resident physicians and medical students who are passionate about evidence-based medicine are invited to apply. Applications for our next cycle are due on November 1, 2017. We will accept 6 Fellows and 4 Junior Fellows this cycle.

    Eligibility requirements:

    • Fellows: MD, DO, or equivalent.
    • Junior Fellows: third- or fourth-year medical student.
    • Registered MDCalc member.
    • Previous writing experience, including in a peer-reviewed publication, is a plus.
