Beginning in July, 2013, Dr. Judith Tintinalli will begin serving as Editor-in-Chief of Emergency Physicians Monthly. Dr. Tintinalli takes over for Dr. Kevin Klauer, who had served as EPM’s editor-in-chief since 2008. Dr. Tintinalli will bring a new perspective to Emergency Physicians Monthly, working with a team of 28 editorial advisors to craft editorial that is personally and professional relevant to EPs in the field.
Dr. Tintinalli comes to EPM after decades of experience as a world-renowned educator. Tintinalli is currently a professor and Chair Emeritus of Emergency Medicine at the University of North Carolina. In addition to teaching in the emergency medicine department, she is an adjunct professor at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public, and a frequent lecturer in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Dr. Tintinalli was the founder and first president of the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors. She is a former president of ABEM as well as the Association of Academic Chairs in Emergency Medicine. She is a past winner of ACEP’s James Mills award as well as ACEP’s National Education Award.
And she is the Editor-in-Chief of 7 editions of her eponymous textbook, which remains a staple of emergency medicine education.
Emergency Physicians Monthly, an independent news magazine that reaches 30,000 emergency physician every month, is the most-read publication in the emergency medicine market*. The addition of Dr. Tintinalli to EPM’s editorial roster promises to raise the magazine’s clinical rigor and professional relevance to new levels.

Congratulations to Dr. Tintinalli and to EPM! There are numerous challenges confronting the House of Medicine and our specialty of emergency medicine. Here’s hoping that EPM continues to highlight these financial, work force, and ethical challenges, as well as the evolving and pragmatic solutions to these problems from around the world.
For example, geriatric adults will continue to become an ever larger presence in the contemporary ED for the next 30 years. The SAEM Academy of Geriatric Emergency Medicine and ACEP Geriatric Section have published several key documents pertaining to the geriatric patient in the ED over the last 5-years including minimal core competencies for graduating EM residents, high-yield research priorities, and a response to the IOM report on the state of emergency medicine. We will need advocates like EPM to help us disseminate these and future consensus-driven, evidence-based work products to the end-users: EPM’s legions or readers.
As a strong advocate of Evidence Based Medicine and Knowledge Translation, I also hope that EPM will continue to provide an outlet for practice-changing research evidence to reach bedside clinicians in an expeditious fashion so that the typical 17-year delay for 14% of the evidence to reach the bedside can be significantly improved.
Best of luck on this new chapter in the history of EPM!
Judy was my residency director in the early ’90’s and, omg! She looks absolutely the same! (I am much older, a tad heavier, and more tired..) I can’t wait to read the influences that she brings to one of my favorite publications! Congratulations!
She is an excellent choice
