ABC News Health Journalism Rotation

ABC News is looking for residents to join the Medical Unit’s Health Journalism Rotation Program for the summer and fall. The Medical Unit provides leads, analysis, media elements, and background information to ABCNews.com, the ABC News network shows (Good Morning America and World News), and supports the Chief Health and Medical Editor, Dr. Rich Besser.

Residents review studies and medical press releases that are sent to the ABC News Medical Unit and write summaries.  The producers and writers decide which stories become news pieces; however,  the residents help to determine the scientific merits and clinical implications of the research.

If you are interested and have the support of your resident director, please email Stephanie Mahin in the Medical Center News office at smahin@unch.unc.edu
