Catherine DeAngelis to step down as JAMA editor in 2011
September 2, 2010
After more than 10 years leading the Journal of the American Medical Association, editor-in-chief Catherine D. DeAngelis, MD, MPH, has announced plans to leave the post next June.
A statement issued by the American Medical Association's JAMA and Archives journal group said DeAngelis would return to Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore where she will develop "a Center for Professionalism in Medicine and the Related Professions, including nursing, public health, business and law."
Before stepping into the JAMA editorship, DeAngelis was vice dean for academic affairs and faculty at Hopkins.
In her tenure at JAMA, DeAngelis has advocated increasingly detailed conflict-of-interest disclosures for authors of medical journal articles -- not only at JAMA but in all publications
