Academic Medicine Announces New Conversations Feature
In his January editorial, editor-in-chief David Sklar introduced the New Conversations feature. The first New Conversations topic seeks the best thinking and creativity in the community regarding the effects of health reform and the Affordable Care Act. Responses, which may take the form of any type of journal submission, will showcase a variety of perspectives on this important issue and will be published throughout this year and the next.
Accompanying Dr. Sklar’s editorial is the first New Conversations contribution, from former Senator Tom Daschle. He provides a broad view of the critical issues facing academic medicine and our health system in the coming years.
