Welcome to CHERN!
COMMUNITY HOSPITAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH NETWORK
We are an organization created to facilitate communication and sharing of knowledge among community hospitals.
We are an informal network whose membership has been solicited through a list of internal medicine program directors in the APDIM community hospital group. We want this critical mass to explore a system of communication that should improve the elaboration of ideas that are important to community hospitals. This ongoing web-based network will facilitate follow-up on ideas discussed at Community Hospital Assemblies of APDIM.
We launched the Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives (JCHIMP) in May 2011. Through 2013 we published 12 issues; 103 manuscripts with more than 17 thousand readers from 150 countries.
JCHIMP is a peer reviewed open access journal that serves as a forum for disseminating infomation relevant to community hospitals. Please visit the website www.JCHIMP.net to become a reader, reveiewer and to submit scholarly articles for review.
