About journal clubs

Journal clubs are educational settings where individuals meet regularly to critically evaluate articles in the medical and scientific literature.

They are a recognised way of keeping up to date with latest advancements in areas of interest.

Host a Journal Club

There are many benefits of taking part, including the following:

  • Increase your knowledge
  • Reflect on your practice
  • Share insights and ideas in a relaxed and supportive setting
  • Encourage evidence-based medicine
  • Keep abreast with new literature
  • Stimulate debate, and improved understanding of current topics
  • Develop your presentation skills
  • Build your network
  • Gain participatory CPD hours towards revalidation

If you would like to host a Journal Club, please email events@fpm.org.uk and let us know.


If you attend this webinar you can use it as CPD for your appraisal. To do so you’ll need to provide:

  • evidence (certificate of attendance), and
  • reflection, specifically a couple of paragraphs on what you learnt, what effect it will have on your current practice and how it relates to Good Medical Practice.

Upload these into your portfolio and self-allocate your CPD points at 0.25 credits per 15 mins.

Queries: If you have any questions please email events@fpm.org.uk.

Joining instructions will be emailed to registered attendees periodically, and a reminder will be sent on the morning of the Journal Club (18 May 2023). Please check your junk folder!
