About the Course:

Issues: Berkeley Medical Journal is a student-run medical journal at the University of California, Berkeley that explores current biomedical, political, and ethical facets of the medical health field. First launched in 1993, this two-unit (P/NP) course is designed to supplement the education of journalism and pre-health students and therefore has two important goals:

1.Successful publication of exemplary articles geared toward the student body and academic community


2.Guide students as they become successful science journalists and written communicators

We welcome students from all backgrounds, as we cover a wide range of topics within the field of healthcare. The best articles are selected for publication in print and on our new website at the end of the semester. 

How to Enroll:

We accept people on a first come first serve basis. Please fill out the google doc and come to the first class to obtain your CEC. If you do not come to the first class, we will give your CEC to other people on the list.
