A medical educator has been named editor-in-chief of The Merck Veterinary Manual, a 66-year-old animal health reference guide now in its 11th edition.
Alexandra L. Winter, BVSc, DACVS, previously served as an editor at the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She remains on the editorial board of the journal Veterinary Surgery and is as associate editor of the Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine.
Dr. Winter also is a faculty member for the Leading Innovations in Healthcare and Education course at the Harvard Macy Institute at Harvard University.
“I will lead an ongoing conversation engaging all relevant stakeholders, including veterinarians, students, animal owners and industry professionals, to advance health and quality of life for both animals and humans,” Dr. Winter said. “The Merck Veterinary Manual, in all of its formats, will reflect these diverse perspectives.”
