A professor of pediatrics and community health sciences at Boston University School of Medicine has been named the new editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Dr. Howard C. Bauchner was selected as the editor of the leading medical journal after an international search, and will start the job in July. Bauchner is currently the editor of the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood. He also does research and publishes his own work, with an emphasis on clinical trials and promoting health.
"We are pleased that Dr. Bauchner will be the new editor of JAMA," AMA chief executive Dr. Michael D. Maves said in a statement. "JAMA is a world-class medical journal and we?re confident the journal will continue to grow and prosper under his leadership. The future of JAMA -- one of the AMA?s most treasured assets -- is in great hands."
