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.

“Participating in the journal club was superb, the sharing of ideas, coupled with debate, is something I thoroughly enjoy. Particularly with physician colleagues from wide-ranging backgrounds within the pharmaceutical industry. The journal club is undoubtedly the perfect platform for this and I would emphatically encourage all members to participate.”
