General Experience

Twenty years’ experience of medical indexing.

Previously in practice in hospital medicine, psychiatry and diagnostic radiology.

My main experience is in back-of-book indexing of medical textbooks published traditionally on paper.
I am flexible in being able to adapt to new ways of identifying locators so as to make indexes repurposable.
