About the book

Graduate medical education (GME) is a continually evolving, highly dynamic area within the complex fabric of the modern healthcare environment. Given the rapidly changing regulatory, financial, and oversight requirements, many GME programs face daily challenges of “keeping up” with the most recent updates to the complex operational code required by the multiple stakeholders involved.

Volume 1 of this series was successfully completed, far exceeding the Editors’ expectations in terms of author participation, quality and quantity of submissions. Now in its 2nd Volume, this book cycle aims to provide GME professionals with a practical and readily applicable set of reference papers that touch upon some of the most controversial contemporary topics, from gender equality issues to trainee wellness and scholarly activities.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Lada Bozic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
