JOURNAL CLUB

Residents and Faculty stay current with weekly Journal Club on Tuesday mornings.

The sometimes lively discussions are an opportunity for all to learn and grow their practice and knowledge. Former residents occasionally give back by presenting their published peer-reviewed original scientific articles to our program.
