Modernizing the journal club

Hosp Med. 2000 Jun;61(6):425-7. doi: 10.12968/hosp.2000.61.6.1360.


Traditionally journal clubs provide a forum to learn presentation skills. We propose a new approach to teaching and learning in journal clubs, focusing on literature acquisition and critical appraisal skills. This approach will enable trainees to use journal clubs for personal professional development as well as for application of new knowledge in clinical medicine to improve patients' outcomes.
