Even with the changing times and our desire to evolve to keep pace, we must still remember what has served us well and what our readers have come to depend on. Last year, prior to the editorial search, the Triological Society performed a survey of the readership. The TRIO Best Practice articles, literature reviews, and the “Everyday Ethics” columns were among the most well-liked features. We will continue to offer these favorites while adding a physician voice to them, as we think the ability to absorb the evidence is augmented by the commentary of a thought leader.

We have many goals for ENTtoday and will gradually begin to introduce some new features. In this month’s issue, we conducted an interview with the new executive director for the American Board of Otolaryngology, Brian Nussenbaum, MD. Dr. Nussenbaum will share his thoughts about the ABOto’s role and address some of the issues surrounding maintenance of certification, a controversial topic that we dive into with a story on its evolution in other medical specialties (see “The Controversy Over Maintenance of Certification,”). He has also shared with us his music playlist for the operating room (below), which is something that we will ask of future interviewees. Who knows, there may be a Taylor Swift fan out there.
On behalf of our new editorial board and Wiley partners, I would like to wish all of our readers a happy and prosperous new year. We are excited for this opportunity and invite you to share with us your thoughts and opinions. Please join us on our quest to inform, entertain, challenge, and amuse.
Alex Chiu, MD
