Advancing Trainees as Leaders and Scholars
Health professions trainees—including students, residents, and fellows in medicine, nursing, and pharmacy—are a pillar of academic medicine. The
Academic Medicine Advancing Trainees as Leaders and Scholars (ATLAS) initiative aims to engage health professions learners in the scholarly publishing process and feature their voices more regularly in
Academic Medicine. By engaging trainees as readers and authors at
Academic Medicine, we hope to help create the next generation of leaders and scholars. This page will serve as a central "hub" for connecting trainees with existing and emerging ATLAS resources.
