I completed my studies in human medicine in 1992. In the nineties, this was followed by a so called AiP (Arzt im Praktikum), which I completed with a general practitioner in a small town in Schleswig-Holstein, at a gynecological clinic in Kiel and at the Department of Neurology at the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel (Professor Soyka). The end of my AiP coincided with the completion of my doctoral thesis (In vitro studies on hematopoietic reconstitution after autologous bone marrow transplantation under the influence of the hematopoietic growth factor G-CSF, Kiel, Univ., Diss., 1995), which was graded magna cum laude.
People often wonder why I ended my medical career and went into publishing. At the time, far too many health care providers were looking for an internship, after having completed their studies. Unfortunately I was one of them. After my reserves were almost exhausted, I turned to another skill, to which I also owe my high school graduation grade (1.8): writing, i.e. working with texts.
In 1997, I was assigned the first medical editing. Initially I edited only German text books and articles. After a while, editing of English text books and articles as well as translations from English into German were added.
In the mean time I am looking back on more than 20 years of publishing experience, the testimony of which you are welcome to read in the references.
