Without question, HPIM features the highest profile board of editors among the competition (both print and online). All are world-class investigator/clinicians. Each editor meticulously edits every chapter and two editors read overlapping chapters. The usual rotation of editors results in Dennis Kasper (the infectious disease editor) as editor-in-chief for this edition. An exception has been made to the retirement policy so that Dr. Braunwald will stay on the project for one last edition. Dr. Braunwald brings to the book tremendous creative energy, wide knowledge of all areas of medicine and incomparable institutional memory. He will also a key player at all the editorial meetings and will help shape the overall direction for this new edition. Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of the most visible medical names in the world through this past work in the AIDS field and current role in the fight against bioterrorism.
