1 More on VCDE WS Journal Club Brian Davis, Ph.D. VCDE WS Teleconference November 17, 2011
2 History and Journal Clubs First mention of Journal Club is from Sir James Paget (1834? in St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London) First Organized Journal Club apparently at McGill University in Montreal by William Osler (1875) Linzer M. The journal club and medical education; over one hundred years of unrecorded history. Postgraduate Medical Journal 1987;63: Standard in Graduate Science and Clinics Electronic Journal Clubs not so successful…?
3 Purposes From Paget (reminiscing on 1834) on the lack of a suitable library: “'in place of this, some of the self-elect of the pupils, making themselves into a kind of club, had a small room over a baker's shop near the Hospital-gate where we could sit and read the journals and where some, in the evening, played cards.‘ From Osler: 'for the purchase and distribution of periodicals to which he could ill afford to subscribe as an individual'. Acknowledgement of a number of purposes (over time) 1.Teach critical reading skills (including speaking, presentation, analytical) 2.Generate questions and disseminate knowledge 3.Keep up with current literature (in field of study) 4.Impact practice We think #2 through #4 are of most interest to VCDE WS participants.
