George D. Lundberg (born March 21, 1933)[1] is an American board-certified pathologist and writer.

For 17 years, Lundberg served as editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). In 1999, Lundberg was sacked from this position after attempting to publish a controversial article on how college students define oral sex. The article coincided with President Clinton's impeachment trial.[2] Executives from the American Medical Association stated that the article had nothing to do with medicine and it jeopardized the high standard of the journal.[3]

Lundberg from February 1999 to January 2009, was the editor of Medscape.[4] He currently serves as an editor-at-large for the site.[5]
