My name is Ajay Major, and I am currently a fellow in adult hematology and oncology at the University of Chicago. I am a Class of 2016 graduate of Albany Medical College and finished my residency in internal medicine at the University of Colorado in 2019.
My journey into narrative medicine and publishing began in April 2012 when I founded in-Training, the online peer-reviewed publication for medical students, and served as editor-in-chief for four years. I also founded in-House, the online peer-reviewed publication for residents and fellows, and currently serve as editor-in-chief since 2016.
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 2014. We currently provide administrative and financial support for six publications: in-Training, in-House, The Palate, North Wing Magazine, Mosaic in Medicine, and Intervene Upstream.
Since our inception, Pager Publications, Inc. has published four books, most recently Salve: Words For The Journey, a compilation of poetry, prose, and journaling prompts written by psychiatrist and author Monisha Vasa, MD.
I am also a lover of all things science fiction and fantasy (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is my favorite -- apologies to all you Picard fans), and I play classical piano, clarinet, and the tenor saxophone.
