Statement of Educational Purpose
JAMA is a general medical journal. Its mission and educational purpose
is to promote the science and art of medicine and the betterment of the public
health. A flexible curriculum of article topics is developed annually by THE
JOURNAL's editorial board and is then supplemented throughout the year with
information gained from readers, authors, reviewers, and editors. To accommodate
the diversity of practice types within JAMA's readership, the Reader's Choice

needs and to assist the editors in addressing their needs in future issues.
Readers of JAMA should be able to attain the following educational
objectives: (1) select and read at least 3 articles in 1 issue to gain new

(2) assess the articles' value to them as practicing physicians, and (3) think
