journal club

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A group of professionals—physicians, health scientists, and the like—who meet to discuss and critically review articles they have recently read in specialized journals in their fields of expertise. The frequency of meetings, their formality, and the extent to which members merely inform one another or critically review and discuss what they have read vary considerably. At its best, a journal club is a powerful learning tool, perhaps especially in acquainting members with cutting-edge developments in fields other than their own.

Subjects: Public Health and Epidemiology.
