ADEA and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) have appointed Paul C. Edwards D.D.S., M.Sc., B.S., as the new Associate Editor of MedEdPORTAL® Publications—an international peer-reviewed publication venue that allows educators in the health professions to publish and share educational resources.

In 2008, ADEA and AAMC formed a partnership to expand MedEdPORTAL’s medical education collection to include dental education resources. As Associate Editor, Dr. Edwards will apply his editorial experience and background in dental education to encourage submissions and promote MedEdPORTAL to the dental education community.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity to work with MedEdPORTAL, ADEA and dental school faculty members,” says Dr. Edwards. “I look forward to helping promote the vision of MedEdPORTAL as the premier clearinghouse of high-quality, peer-reviewed health education tools; to promote interprofessional collaboration by facilitating the open exchange of educational resources across the health professions; and to offer health care professionals with educational resources to help improve patient care.”

Dr. Edwards is currently Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. He previously served as a full-time faculty member at Creighton University and the University of Michigan, teaching at the allied health professional, predoctoral, graduate and advanced dental education levels. Dr. Edwards holds an M.S. in Biochemistry and a D.D.S. from the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry, and a Certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology from Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Since 2011, he has served as Editor for the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and as Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Section Editor of Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology (OOOO). Dr. Edwards is also Chief Consulting Editor for the JADA Oral Pathology Specialty Scan and serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Oral Biosciences and BMC Head and Face Medicine. Dr. Edwards previously served as the Clinicopathologic Conference editor of OOOO (2005–2011), and on the editorial board of the Journal of Dental Education (2008–2011).

Dr. Edwards assumes the MedEdPORTAL Associate Editor position from Janet M. Guthmiller, D.D.S., Ph.D., Dean, University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry, who had served in this position since 2012.
