“FPIN has been a wonderful opportunity for professional growth. The Network provides an extremely supportive atmosphere for physicians to grow both as writers and as editors. It is an opportunity to practice critical appraisal of the literature and gain expertise in selected topics. I would highly recommend the FPIN network for anyone interested in expanding their editorial experience.”
