Journal Clubs

Journal Clubs (JCs) have a long history. The first JC was organised in 1875 by Sir William Osler who worked at McGill University, Montreal (Canada). By the end of the XIX century, JCs became widespread across medical communities and were often held twice a month, at which one participant would present a paper and the assembled audience would critique. Here you can read more about the history of JCs.
We keep following the traditions of nobel medical societies of late 1880s. In our PhD program, students hold a JC twice a month presenting a recently published peer-reviewed paper. JCs are held exclusively in English.
