TWENTY YEARS ago the first Morris Fishbein Fellow reported to JAMA. Next week the latest Fellow in this tradition—Ronna H. Siegel, MD—begins her year dedicated to gaining experience in medical editing.

Siegel, who received her MD degree from Northwestern University Medical School in 1975, lives in the Chicago, Ill, suburb of Oak Park. She is the 17th physician to be awarded the fellowship.

The program honors the late Morris Fishbein, MD, JAMA's chief editor for 25 years, longer than anyone who has held the editorship to date.

The American Medical Association Dr Morris Fishbein Fellowship in Medical Journalism was announced 6 months after his death. The 16 physicians who have been Fishbein Fellows in medical editing since then and their dates of service are:

1977 to 1978—Jeffrey R. M. Kunz, MD, Madison, Wis, who is now chief executive officer, Midwest Health Systems, and clinical associate professor, University of Wisconsin
