Physicians contacted by a person purporting to work for DEA and seeking money or threatening to suspend your DEA registration, submit the information through “Extortion Scam Online Reporting” posted on the DEA Diversion Control Division’s website,

Changes at the Southwest Journal of Pulmonary and Critical Care (8/14/18)

After discussions amongst the associate editors changes are being made which are intended to emphasize and encourage submission of high quality scientific and review manuscripts. Specific changes which will take place include:
  1. Continue the case of the month but only have one case with pulmonary, critical care and imaging alternating. There would be 12 cases per year total. Each will have a more descriptive title and be a little longer than previously but 0.5 CME hours will be offered instead of 0.25 hours.
  2. Medical Image of the Week will be changed to Medical Image of the Month with monthly rather than weekly postings.
  3. The journal clubs will be closed. Previous journal clubs will be placed in an archive.
