A wish list that would go a long way toward bringing peace on earth to the world's women and the ob/gyns who treat them.

Dr. Lockwood, Editor-in-Chief, is Dean of the Morsani College of Medicine and Senior Vice President of USF Health, University of South Florida, Tampa. He can be reached at DrLockwood@advanstar.com.


Our Editor-in-Chief's wish list is for peace on earth . . . and goodwill toward the world's women and the ob/gyns who treat them. Helping patients and their babies live longer and better tops the list, but making physicians' lives easier is important too; thus the wishes that involve less time spent on the computer, fighting lawsuits, and dealing with insurance reform. And regardless of profession, we'd all be better off if number 4 magically comes true!
