Clinical Pearls: Q&A with William F. Young, Jr., MD, Editor-in-Chief of JCEM Case Reports
In anticipation of the Endocrine Society’s new open access journal, JCEM Case Reports, its editor-in-chief, William F. Young, Jr., MD, talks to Endocrine News about how this new journal will have a place for both master clinicians and early-career physicians to present their cases, why it’s important to hear the patient’s perspective, as well as his own very first particularly challenging case.
In March, the Endocrine Society announced that it will launch a new open-access, online-only journal called JCEM Case Reports that will feature reports on clinical cases and detail how to approach and solve complex clinical problems in endocrinology. JCEM Case Reports will be fully peer-reviewed and begin publishing issues in late 2022.
And the Society is pleased to further announce that past president William F. Young, Jr., MD, will serve as three-year term as the journal’s inaugural editor-in-chief. Young is the Tyson Family Endocrinology Clinical Professor and professor of medicine in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
“Case reports are a foundation of medicine, giving clinicians an opportunity to learn about novel situations and apply that knowledge to their own practices,” Young says. “It is truly an honor to be the first to lead JCEM Case Reports. The journal will help disseminate clinical pearls to busy clinicians worldwide.”
The journal will welcome educational or rare clinical cases that are well described, with clear learning points, and of special interest to early-career endocrinologists and members of endocrinology care teams. The journal is particularly interested in exploring ways to effectively diagnose and treat endocrine conditions in regions with limited clinical resources. These cases may have important implications for a wider audience.
