Journal Club


Journal Clubs

Journal clubs will be held in the evenings every 2-3 months.

  • There will be two assigned CCW Fellows to each Journal Club who will present one of the two journals chosen by the CCW Faculty
  • The schedule will be emailed out to all fellows in August. If a fellow is unable to present at specific date, it is their responsibility to find another fellow to replace them (and email the chief resident in charge of JC)
  • Faculty have been encouraged to choose articles which they feel may impact the upcoming Royal College Adult Critical Care Medicine Exam
