Journal Club

Journal Club is held three times per year. The location of the meeting is selected to promote social interaction, and to be an enjoyable educational experience. Two residents are selected by the chief resident to present an article of their choice, in the fields of anesthesiology, internal or intensive care medicine or pain. The presenting resident will be mentored by a staff member. Anesthesiologists from all hospitals in the city are invited to attend and encouraged to participate actively in the club.
