FROM THE EDITOR
Introducing FPM's New Medical Editor
We welcome Sarina Schrager, MD, MS, to the FPM editorial team.
Fam Pract Manag. 2019 Jul-Aug;26(4):4.
With this issue we bring you the good news that Sarina Schrager, MD, MS, has been appointed as FPM's medical editor. Dr. Schrager practices full-scope family medicine with low-risk obstetrics and teaches at the University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine and Community Health in Madison, where she is a professor.
She has extensive writing and editing experience, having written for most of the major family medicine journals, served on multiple editorial boards, worked as an associate editor for The Wisconsin Medical Journal and Family Practice, and chaired the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine's Communications Committee. Dr. Schrager has written several articles for FPM over the years, including, most recently, “Five Ways to Communicate Risks So That Patients Understand” (November/December 2018).
The FPM editorial team and search committee were particularly excited about Dr. Schrager's vision for FPM as a vehicle for ideas to help make the patient care experience more productive and satisfying for you and your patients. In addition to covering traditional practice management topics, we plan to publish more articles that inspire and equip you to enhance those aspects of practice that might have drawn you to family medicine in the first place, such as clinical decision-making, communication, and other aspects of patient care, and that affect your professional satisfaction and your personal well-being. You have told us these are your priorities as well.
You can read more about Dr. Schrager's vision for FPM on the next page. We look forward to working together to help you achieve the promise on our cover — Better Practice. Healthier Patients. Rewarding Career.
