MedEdits Employment

Recently we have had several queries regarding employment at MedEdits. I wanted to review our criteria for hiring and emphasize what makes us unique. I also want to emphasize the importance of hiring an ethical company with high moral standards. There are some companies out there who utilize shady methods and are dishonest about their credentials.

Advising and Admissions Consulting:

Dr. Jessica Freedman is the only person at MedEdits who mentors, advises and provides admissions consulting for our clients. We are not hiring any additional consultants but, if we did in the future, we would require applicants to have at least 5 years of experience in medical education and admissions at the attending level. We would also require at least 5 letters of reference from well respected colleagues. To maintain our high moral standards, we would not hire any individuals who currently serve on faculty at any medical school.

Document Editing and Review:

Dr. Freedman reviews and edits all admissions documents. Our editors, who work directly with Dr. Freedman, all have at least 10 years of experience in the writing and publishing industry. We are not hiring any editors currently but, if positions become available, we will not hire current students or recent graduates.
