New Associate Editor: Introducing Alistair Tindall

We are delighted to announce a new addition to the JMCR Editorial Board. Alistair Tindall MSc FRCS (Tr. & Orth.) will take the position of Associate Editor handling orthopaedics and trauma case reports.

As an Open Access advocate, Mr Tindall comments, “I think case reports can add almost as much as a ‘full paper’. They highlight new presentations of common diseases that should be borne in mind by the clinician. They also act as a short review on common topics and the discussion should present a nice synopsis of current knowledge in a particular field.”

His new role on Journal of Medical Case Reports will compliment his other editorial position as Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Medicine: Trauma and Intensive Medicine.” The launch of JMCR brings a new perspective into the way the traditional case report affects the modern physician’s approach to continued education and professional learning. Alistair notes, A good case report will educate, entertain and stimulate. It may not be relevant to day to day practice, but it is by looking at interesting cases that we learn most about the art and practice of medicine.”

Alistair is a trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in a general hospital in South East London, but has a particular interest in orthopaedics in the developing world. His current research interests are in cell engineering and autologous chondrocyte implantation, and has carried out extensive research into lower limb work.

Alistair will be a great asset to our existing Editorial Board – we are sure that he will enjoy working with us on our unique online journal!
