Director of Family Medicine Named Editor of Journal of Family Medicine

Cincinnati--Jeff Susman, MD, professor and director of the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine, will be the new editor of the Journal of Family Practice, effective January 1, 2003. Dr. Susman is the medical editor for the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), Home Study Monograph Series, a department editor for Current Psychiatry, and a referee for journals in family medicine and other specialties.

Dr. Susman has served as chair of the AAFP Research and Clinical Policy Committees, is an ad hoc reviewer and study section member, and on numerous guideline panels, including current efforts through the AAFP, the Arthritis Foundation and the American Medical Association. Dr. Susman's research interests are in the translation of evidence-based medicine into practice, particularly in the primary care mental health arena. In the few minutes left after work and his family, he enjoys gardening, antique collecting and is even trying to learn to draw!

According to publisher Dowden Health Media, the vision for the Journal of Family Practice is to remain the premier source for current, evidence-based, clinical information, including clinical inquiries, applied evidence and selected practical clinical research. The Journal of Family Practice will continue to solicit articles summarizing best practices in office-based diagnosis and treatment, summaries of new clinical guidelines, and research that has immediate relevance to the practicing physician. The Journal of Family Practice will be introducing new features such as "Photo Rounds," "In the Public's Health" and "Grand Rounds." The Journal of Family Practice states that its mission is to translate best evidence-based medical information into practice.

If you have suggestions for this publication, or would like to serve as a reviewer, contributor or possibly on the editorial board, please contact Dr. Susman directly at or in care of the Department of Family Practice, University of Cincinnati, PO Box 670582, Cincinnati, OH 45267-0582; 513-558-4021.
