Howard Bauchner, MD, JAMA's editor-in-chief since 2011, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into a heavily criticized podcast about structural racism in medicine.

In a statement shared with MedPage Today but not posted publicly, the American Medical Association's Journal Oversight Committee said the decision to place Bauchner on leave "neither implicates nor exonerates individuals and is standard operating procedure for such investigations."

The committee said the investigation will look into how the podcast and a tweet that promoted it were "developed, reviewed, and ultimately published." It said it "has engaged independent outside investigators from the Zuber Lawler firm to ensure objectivity and the integrity of the investigation."
