About This Blog

“Insights on Residency Training,” launched in October 2010, examines a range of clinical issues from the resident’s point of view. The blog will frequently cite and comment on stories from NEJM Journal Watch, but will also draw on other sources, including the bloggers’ own observations and experience. We hope that it’ll offer you, our readers, a chance to weigh in as well. The views and opinions expressed in this blog are not necessarily those of NEJM Journal Watch or NEJM Group.

Terms and Privacy

The blog is hosted by the Massachusetts Medical Society, publishers of the New England Journal of Medicine and NEJM Journal Watch. Comments to individual posts are, of course, encouraged. This is a moderated forum, meaning that editorial staff review comments before they are posted and that we need to know you are a real person (and that we require a valid email address). We will never publish that email address, and inclusion of your name is optional. We will also not publish comments that do the following:

  • Personally attack, abuse, or bait others
  • Make the same point repeatedly
  • Self-identify as a patient of our bloggers or one of their colleagues (this is a no-no in the post-HIPAA world)
  • Quote more material than is necessary to capture the point being made, or fail to attribute quoted material — please provide the link
  • Use comments as a venue for self-promotion or sales
