About the Editors-in-Chief: Ajay Major

My name is Ajay Major, a 2012 graduate of Union College in Schenectady, NY with a interdisciplinary major in chemistry and Spanish. I just finished my two-year tenure as editor-in-chief of the Concordiensis, Union College’s official student newspaper. At the Concordiensis, I managed a 25-member editorial board and 50-member writing staff, rebuilt the newspaper’s website, and created the first Concordiensis Stylebook. I enter physician-journalism with interests in language barriers and ethnic disparities in healthcare delivery and protein biochemistry. I am currently completing my MBA in Healthcare Management from Union Graduate College and will matriculate at Albany Medical College in the fall.

My name is Ajay Major, a Class of 2016 graduate of Albany Medical College and an internal medicine resident at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

My journey into medical journalism and publishing began in April 2012 when I founded in-Training, the online magazine for medical students, and served as editor-in-chief for four years. I also founded in-House, the online magazine for residents and fellows, and The Palate, an online magazine for medical students at the intersection of nutrition and public health.

To support these publications, I founded Pager Publications, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit literary corporation that curates and supports peer-edited publications for the medical education community. In May 2016, Pager Publications, Inc. published its first print book: in-Training: Stories from Tomorrow's Physicians, a print compendium of over 100 articles written and edited by medical students on humanism, our real-life patients, and the challenges of being a physician-in-training

I am also a lover of all things science fiction and fantasy (Star Trek: Voyager is my favorite -- apologies to all you Picard fans), and I play classical piano and clarinet.
