James Hamblin

M.D.

James Hamblin is a writer and senior editor at The Atlantic. He writes the health column in the monthly magazine and hosts a video series called If Our Bodies Could Talk. His work has been featured in/on The New York Times, Politico magazine, NPR, BBC, MSNBC, New York magazine, Slate, The Awl, and even mentioned in passing on The Colbert Report. TIME named him among the 140 people to follow on Twitter in 2014, and BuzzFeed called him "the most delightful MD ever," though he is in no way as delightful as William Carlos Williams. 

After finishing medical school, Hamblin did three years of medical residency—and improv at iO in Chicago and UCB in LA—before joining The Atlantic to develop a health section and, at least for now, work entirely in media. More pieces of that story are in these articles in Columbia Journalism Review, Journal of the American College of Radiology, and Capital New York. The best way to keep up with new stuff is probably on Facebook.
