About the Authors
JC is an employee of the BMJ Publishing Group, which benefits from academic medicine. RS is an employee of the UnitedHealth Group, which benefits from the output of academic medicine. It's not easy to see how the company might be affected financially from any of the possible changes in academic medicine. He is also an unpaid governor of St George's, University of London, and an unpaid board member of the Public Library of Science, both of which will be affected by any changes.
