Description

AIMGA is pleased to host a journal club for members who wish to maintain their clinical knowledge and skills through weekly review sessions with fellow members. The purpose of the journal club is to review, discuss and evaluate published articles. The sessions are moderated by one of our members with a background in research and Public Health.

Dr. Turin Chowdhury from Community Medicine, University of Calgary provides a monthly lecture to ensure you have a foundational understanding of research methodology, clinical epidemiology, and statistics to critically appraise articles. The club is also an excellent opportunity for an exchange of insights regarding clinical problems. Our current session is ongoing and members interested must join at the beginning of the course in order to fully benefit from this program. This is an excellent course for those interested in research opportunities and joining AIMGA’s research team.

If you are interested in joining our upcoming journal club and are looking to gain a foundational understanding of research methods and developing your critical appraisal skills to assess and interpret publications accurately, our next session will begin in September.

Please contact Shola at shola@aimga.ca or Monica at Monica@aimga.ca to be added to the waitlist for our upcoming journal club.
