Annals editor announces retirement

Frank S. Davidoff, FACP, will retire as editor of Annals of Internal Medicine in July of next year.

Dr. Davidoff has been editor of Annals since 1995 and has worked for the College since 1989. "Editing Annals has been a fantastic experience," Dr. Davidoff said. "Leaving will be difficult. At the same time, I feel I've accomplished most of what I set out to do with the journal. Besides, I have reached retirement age, and I and my family agree that it's best to quit while you're ahead."

A search committee chaired by former College Regent Jock Murray, MACP, and composed of College members, staff and Annals editorial board members, will consider appropriate candidates. Interested candidates should contact Guy Hudson, ACP­ASIM Director of Human Resources, at 215-351-2412.
