New York, NY (PRWEB) December 21, 2010
Dr. Jessica Freedman, founder of MedEdits Medical Admissions, was selected to be featured in the 2011 edition of Marquis Who’s Who in America. “I was truly honored to be included in Who’s Who” says Jessica Freedman, M.D., founder of MedEdits Medical Admissions. MedEdits provides comprehensive medical school admissions and residency match consulting and professional editing services for applicants.
Dr. Freedman was on faculty at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine where she served as the associate residency director of emergency medicine and on the medical school admissions committee. She also played a pivotal role in resident and medical student education and curriculum design. After leaving Mount Sinai in 2008, Dr. Freedman founded MedEdits, a medical educational consulting and editing firm. She also authored two top-selling books on the medical interview process and has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune, and the LA Times. Dr. Freedman is a board certified and practicing emergency physician.
“The primary selection criteria for Marquis Who’s Who publications are: 1. position of leadership held at significant organization, 2. educational attainments, 3. noteworthy achievement in creative works (writings, music, television, movies, etc.), 4. significant publishing or public speaking experience, or 5. contributions to the community. For listees in Who’s Who in America, these accomplishments tend to be national in scope.”
“What I enjoyed most while on faculty at Mount Sinai was my work with medical students and residents. I founded MedEdits so I could continue to mentor, educate, and motivate medical trainees. Unlike my competitors, I have served as an admissions officer at both the medical school and residency levels. I also see myself as an extension of the academic medical arena; I attend academic meetings, stay up to date with trends in medical admissions and bring this knowledge to my students. I am continually amazed by the bad advice offered to students, even by those who claim to be “experts,” and I try to dispel myths and misconceptions. My guidance and advice is based on my own experience in a competitive academic environment, what I continue to learn from meetings and journals and on suggestions offered by my board of advisors all of whom still work in academic medicine.”
MedEdits’ medical school clients have been accepted to a variety of prestigious institutions, including Duke, The University of Pittsburgh, UCLA and Columbia. “I am proud of our medical school, residency and fellowship clients’ success,” notes Dr. Freedman.
