Editorial Review Group Chairs (ERGS)

Doody’s Review Service recruits healthcare professionals from institutions across the country to serve as Editorial Review Group Chairs, coordinating the reviews of books in their respective specialties. Typically, Chairs are senior members of large departments who have a ready source of reviewers to call on. Chairs are asked to serve for a minimum of three years, but many of our current chairs have served far longer.
