This medical student-led club meets monthly to discuss scientific papers and promote dissemination and discourse on the topics presented. At each Journal Club meeting, students present a paper on their own research or a topic assigned by club leadership. The hour-long meetings include three student presentations followed by a Q&A session. View the HWCOM Medical Student Journal Club format document.
Our goal is to expand students’ scientific repertoire and hone their presentation skills while building resumes. In addition, students will be exposed to landmark studies and gain practice in critically reading scientific articles. The Journal Club also allows students to build professional connections through a research network.
