Generally, Journal Club meetings will be held every second Wednesday of the month.
The purpose of the Medical Education Journal Club is to regularly meet to evaluate critically the practical application and research of recent articles in the medical education literature. “As an entity, journal clubs have a long history in postgraduate medical education, which is well documented by Linzer” (Milbrandt and Vincent, 2004). The Medical Education Journal Club at Tulane will follow the traditional model. This model includes allowing participants to: keep up with current literature in medical education, create an impact on medical education teaching and learning, and to teach critical reading skills (Linzer, 1987).
To help individuals to critically evaluate current literature and assess the possibility of changes that may occur in medical education and medical education research, while increasing their knowledge base in medical education.
