  • Subject: Editor's Perspectives

In this issue of the journal, we have 10 manuscripts. There are two very interesting opinion pieces in editorial form. In our previous issue, a survey by Buscemi resulted in questions regarding the necessity of the maintenance of internal medicine certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification Program. Dr. Kempen expands on this and is in strong support of reducing requirements of maintenance of certification status. A second editorial comments on an article in the same issue, on the variable of patient lifestyle (rather than medical care) influencing medical readmissions. Dr. Gulati comments on the implications financially.(Published: 17 April 2013)Citation: Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives 2013, 3: 20824 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/jchimp.v3i1.20824
