SEVEN WEEKS from today, Carin Olson, MD, becomes JAMA's tenth Morris Fishbein Fellow in Medical Journalism. The 36-year-old emergency medicine physician says that, among other things, she expects the fellowship to provide opportunity for "a little reflection" at this stage of her life and career.
The year-long fellowship honors Morris Fishbein, MD, editor of JAMA from 1924 to 1949, who died 12 years ago at the age of 87 years (JAMA 1976;236: 820-1822). The first physician-recipient, Jeffrey R. M. Kunz, MD, was named in 1977 (JAMA 1977;238:464). Those who have been selected as fellows since then are Sean (John) P. Callan, MD; Alan M. Blum, MD; William Golden, MD; Carlotta M. Rinke, MD; Bruce B. Dan, MD; Helene M. Cole, MD; Donald E. Riesenberg, MD; and Jody Zylke, MD.
Carin Olson, who will be the Fishbein Fellow from July 1 through June 30 of next year, was born in
