Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Journal of the American Osteopathic College of Radiology (JAOCR).
The Journal is the brain child of AOCR member, Dr. William T. O’Brien, Sr., DO., who has extensive experience as a researcher and author including textbooks and book chapters.
When Dr. O’Brien approached the AOCR Board of Directors with the idea for the JAOCR, the concept was embraced whole-heartedly as he agreed to be editor and guide us. Because of his extensive experience, the path to this inaugural issue has been rapid. Many AOCR members have research and publishing experience, and to be able to share practical knowledge with our members and members in training is exciting. The goal is not to duplicate what already exists in the imaging journal world but to focus on information that is applicable to our everyday practices. See the “From the Editor” page in this journal.
To be able to be on the forefront of supporting our members is the goal. We invite all members to give us feedback via email/mail, etc., to help make this journal fit their needs.
Huge thanks are due to Dr. Frederick White (President-elect and Chair of the Editorial Committee) for spearheading and encouraging this effort. As always, the AOCR staff has done all the work behind the scenes, especially Communications Director, Ms. Jessica Roberts, who manages the JAOCR website and provides communication between the many AOCR committees and the many AOCR members. Pam Smith, Executive Director, because of her long-dedicated experience with the AOCR and relationships with our members has put us in contact with contributors. Pam also, as Executive Director, has kept us fiscally responsible in this endeavor.
Enjoy this inaugural JAOCR. You are encouraged to be a contributor. Please text/tweet/email, etc., Jessica. Let us know your thoughts on how to shape this journal for your needs. We at the AOCR are excited to bring you this journal, and we want you to be equally excited as we take this giant leap in serving our members’ educational needs.Back To Top
