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.
