Pulse searches for GP trainees to guest-edit its magazine

Pulse is on the hunt for GP trainees interested in journalism to help edit a copy of its magazine later this year.

The group of trainees will determine the editorial direction of Pulse for that month, advising on investigations, features and news that are of interest to them and contributing to editorial team meetings.

Pulse editor Nigel Praities said that the move was designed to help the next generation of GPs have more of a say in the future of the profession.

He said: ‘We are a magazine designed for GPs and we want to give a platform to those in training to say what they think about the current state of the profession and how they wish it to change in the future.’

GP trainees can apply to be part of Pulse’s ‘Next Generation Editorial Board’ by emailing with examples of their writing and a short biography. Candidates must be prepared to come to London to meet the Pulse team for a full editorial board meeting later this year.
