Ever wondered where Grey’s Anatomy writers get their medical stories? One significant source is current surgery residents participating in the Grey’s Anatomy Surgical Communication Fellowship. Intrigued? SDN recently interviewed the medical team for the show to learn more about what it’s like to work in this role.
You can apply to be a Grey’s Anatomy Surgical Communications Fellow! The job offers opportunities in medical consulting, medical writing and research. Fellows serve as consultants, sharing their experiences as a surgical resident, researching groundbreaking surgical procedures, and guiding the direction of surgical storylines.
Fellowship applicants must have completed at least two years of a surgical residency, have strong verbal and written communication skills, be mindful of storytelling and dramatic structure, and be able to reside in Los Angeles for the duration of the program. Fellows are required to commit to a minimum of duration of three months and are encouraged to be in the room with the writers as much as possible, generally from 10 am-6 pm, 3-5 days a week. A small stipend is included for fellows who participate.
The application deadline is March 15, 2020.

We’ve been on the Internet for over 20 years doing just one thing: providing health career information for free or at cost. We do this because we believe that the health education process is too expensive and too competitive. Many people and organizations have built their businesses making money on students who are desperate for any opportunity to become a doctor.
We believe that all students deserve the same access to high-quality information. We believe that providing high-quality career advice and information ensures that everyone, regardless of income or privilege, has a chance to achieve their dream of being a doctor.
