SHERP Program at NYU
If you're interested in medical journalism, you should take a look at the SHERP program at NYU. New York University's Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program (SHERP) is one of the oldest and most prestigious science journalism training programs in the country. The program was known as 'SERP' until 2006, when the 'H' was added to acknowledge the program's focus on health reporting. Perhaps it should have been an "M" for Medical reporting, but then SMERP just doesn't have the right ring to it. Students completing the 16-month program receive a Master of Arts in Journalism and an Advanced Certificate in Science, Health and Environmental Reporting.
