Meet the Author

Thomas Green, MD Professor and Chairman of Pediatrics Children’s Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

Wayne Franklin, MD Physician-Director, CME Programs Associate Professor of Pediatrics Children’s Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

Robert R. Tanz, MD Professor of Pediatrics Director, Diagnostic and Consultation Services Children’s Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

This is a very impressive group of authors. Dr. Green is Chairman of Pediatrics at Northwestern, and Physician-in-Chief at Children’s Memorial Hospital, one of the top pediatric hospitals in the U.S. (He succeeds James Stockman, who left the position to become President of the American Board of Pediatrics). Dr. Franklin is a pediatric cardiologist who coordinates all CME and recertification review activities for Children’s, as such he is expert in the content of the recertification exam and its structure. Dr. Tanz directs the consult service at Children’s and thus has a wide breadth of clinical knowledge. All three are widely published in the journal literature but this will be their first book.
