Two TTUHSC-El Paso physicians contribute to cardiology journal
July 21st, 2012
Two physicians from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) at El Paso are on the editorial board of Cardiology Review, a journal dedicated to bridging the gap between research and practice. The editor-in-chief since July 2008 is Debabrata Mukherjee, MD, MS, FACC, chief of cardiovascular medicine and the vice chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at TTUHSC El Paso.
Also on the editorial board for Cardiology Review is Dr. German Hernandez, MD, FASN, FACP, director of nephrology research and an assistant professor of medicine in the divisions of Nephrology & Hypertension, Biostatistics & Epidemiology at TTUHSC El Paso. Hernandez has been on the editorial board since October 2011.
“The popular journal re-presents original research from prestigious cardiac journals, and invites editorial board members to summarize the research (approximately 800 words), and provide a brief commentary that puts the key findings in perspective, provides clinical practice implications, and places the research in a real-world context,” Dr. Mukherjee wrote in a recent email to Synapse. “Physicians are chosen to be on the editorial board by the editor-in-chief based on expertise, stature and national recognition in the field.”
Cardiology Review – which is indexed in EMBASE, EMBiology, Elsevier BIOBASE, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and Scopus – reaches nearly 63,000 physicians each month. It is published bimonthly.
Additionally, Mukherjee and Hernandez serve on the editorial boards of two other journals. Mukherjee is the editor-in-chief for the PUBMED/MEDLINE-indexed journal Cardiovascular & Hematological Agents in Medicinal Chemistry. Hernandez is on the editorial board of Ethnicity & Disease, a peer-reviewed, refereed medical journal that provides information on disease patterns in ethnic minority populations throughout the world.
