Dr. Jonathan Windram:
New Editor of the ACHD Learning Center
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Jonathan Windram on his appointment as new Editor of the ACHD Learning Center (www.isachdlearningcenter.org). The ACHD Learning Center is a joint venture developed by the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, in collaboration with the International Society for Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ISACHD), and has become one of the most important resources for educational materials in our field.
Dr. Jonathan Windram, Associate Clinical Professor at the Division of Cardiology, University of Alberta (Canada), is currently pursuing an online Masters in Medical Education at the University of Dundee, United Kingdom.
After completion of his training in Adult Medicine and Cardiology in the United Kingdom, Dr. Windram received his subspecialty training in Adult Congenital Heart Disease at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham (UK), under the supervision of Dr. Sara Thorne, and at the Toronto Congenial Cardiac Centre for Adults, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Erwin Oechslin. He also successfully completed subspecialty training in cardiac MRI at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. Shi-Joon Yoo.
Dr. Windram has been involved in the development of the ACHD Learning Center for many years. As Editor of the ACHD Learning Center, Dr. Windram will oversee content and educational value of the ACHD Learning Center Website, will promote the ACHD Learning Center as the ‘go-to’ learning portal for ACHD professionals, and coordinate activities with the Pediatric Cardiac Learning Center (www.pediatriccardiaclearningcenter.org), the CHiP Network (www.chip-network.org), and ISACHD (www.isachd.org). The ACHD Learning Center Editor will collaborate directly with the Editor of the Pediatric Cardiac Learning Center, Dr. Justin Tretter. Dr. Windram will start his new position on April 1, 2019.
Dr. Gary Webb will resign as Editor of the ACHD Learning Center as of March 31, 2019. He has developed the ACHD Learning Center, in collaboration with the Editorial Board Members and a very motivated team in Cincinnati, to become a hub of educational material for the ACHD community. On behalf of Cincinnati Children’s, ISACHD, and all of us in this field, we owe Dr. Webb a ‘big thank you’ for his tremendous leadership. We are delighted that Dr. Webb has agreed to assist and support Dr. Windram in his new role during a transition period of 12 months.
