Texas Heart Institute Journal: Dr. Zvonimir Krajcer Assumes Role of Editor-in-Chief

The Texas Heart Institute (THI) is proud to announce Dr. Zvonomir Krajcer has officially assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief of the Texas Heart Institute Journal, a peer-reviewed journal published by THI as part of its medical education program.

Since 1974, the Journal has reached millions of readers around the world, with emphasis on the dissemination of information to physicians in practice. For more information, visit the THI Journal pages on our website.

The THI Journal’s former editors—Drs. Robert J. Hall, James J. Ferguson III, and James T. Willerson—were committed to providing physicians and healthcare professionals with information related to all aspects of treating patients who have cardiovascular disease. Their standards for quality and integrity were high, and Dr. Krajcer will build upon the strong foundation they established.

In this issue, Dr. Krajcer highlights his goals and introduces the new leadership including Doctors Stephanie A. Coulter, Jose G. Diez, and Emerson C. Perin who will serve as Associate Editors. Their broad experience and skills as leaders in our Texas Heart Institute (THI) educational and research programs uniquely qualify them to guide us in our endeavors.
