JAMA Internal Medicine (formerly the Archives of Internal Medicine) is an international peer-reviewed journal providing innovative and clinically relevant research for practitioners in
general internal medicine and internal medicine subspecialities. We strive to publish articles that are stimulating to read, educate and inform readers with the
most up-to-date research, and lead to positive change in our health care systems and the way we deliver patient care.
JAMA Internal Medicine receives regular attention from major media, including New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters Health, and US News
and World Report, as well as social media outlets around the world. Articles published in JAMA Internal Medicine have led to actions by the FDA and congressional
hearings on matters of patient safety that have put into place better measures to protect the public. The journal's 2013 impact factor is 13.25.
The editor of JAMA Internal Medicine is Rita F. Redberg, MD, MSc, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, San Francisco,
