For more than 20 years, physicians, researchers, and healthcare clients have depended on Tremaine Medical Communications for assistance in accomplishing their publishing goals.
As a Certified Editor in the Life Sciences (ELS, as awarded by the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences) and a member of the American Medical Writers Association, I have edited and written hundreds of publications in many medical disciplines, most notably all disciplines of surgery and orthopaedics .Projects have included manuscripts published in a wide variety of medical journals; chapters for textbooks; technical manuals; abstracts for presentation; research proposals; protocols for Institutional Review Boards; and healthcare brochures.
I received a bachelor of arts degree in English from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After 14 years as a medical writer and editor at The Ohio State University Hospitals, I started Tremaine Communications in 1984 to provide freelance/contract medical editing and writing services to physicians and researchers. I am a member of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS).
I have written and edited abstracts and manuscripts for journal publication in a variety of medical specialties, as well as books, book chapters, NDAs, INDs, and final reports of clinical trials. I have been the Editor of two hospital magazines (for Mount Carmel Health System and The Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio).
The Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS) was founded in 1991 to evaluate the proficiency of manuscript editors in the life sciences and to award credentials similar to those obtainable in other professions.
Why certification for editors?
