Journal Club (or Selected Readings) is a regularly scheduled didactic session often used in Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs for residents and faculty to gather and discuss current scholarly literature to increase their knowledge of clinical care topics. It increases awareness of applying evidence-based medicine in daily practice and provides a forum for residents to gain lifelong habits of regularly reading to stay current in their chosen field of medicine. Northeast Georgia Health System has our own spin on Journal Club where we read, review and discuss topics relevant to GME. Participation is easy—just read the attached articles before the meeting and bring your thoughts, opinions and ideas of how we can apply some of the information to our programs!
When: Every third Tuesday, Noon – 1 p.m.
Where: GME Classroom
Preparation: Please read the articles being discussed sent out one week in advance.
Lunch is provided!
