Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

Feb 9, 2021

This week, Dr. Mandy Armitage describes how to publish your first book. You might recall that she was interviewed in Episode #22 about medical writing.

She returns now to promote her new book and teach you how to self-publish your first book.

Mandy is a board-certified physiatrist, freelance medical writer, and consultant. Prior to transitioning to nonclinical work, she practiced musculoskeletal medicine. She earned her MD from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed her PM&R Residency at Carolinas Healthcare system, followed by a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Emory University.

She was a guest on the podcast almost three years ago to talk about medical writing. In addition to writing, she has worked as Medical Director for several health technology start-ups.

Now she is back doing freelance medical writing and coaching other clinicians with their writing.  And she just released a new book called From Clinical Practice to Medical Writing: A Career Transition Guide.

I enjoyed hearing about Dr. Armitage’s decision to write a book. And she walks us through the steps she took to publish it.

I encourage you to visit and purchase the book while you’re there.
