To the Editor In our previously published Invited Commentary,1 Mr Toppen’s degree was inadvertently reported as “MD.” In fact, Mr Toppen is a fourth-year medical student, and his degree should have been reported as “BA.” We apologize to the editor, the editorial board, and the readers for this oversight. This error has been corrected.2
