Medical Education Journal Club

This program aims to increase faculty members’ awareness of trends in medical education.

About the Program:
Each month, a faculty facilitator presents an overview of one to three articles from an educational journal to identify the educational research conducted at schools of medicine around the nation.   Attendees are welcome to participate in discussion.

These informal meetings will be held from 12:00-1:00 PM on the 1st Tuesday of the month in room C2-33 (unless otherwise noted).   All dates are scheduled for videoconferencing to Jacksonville in the Borland Library. Videoconferencing to the College of Veterinary Medicine is being arranged.  An announcement providing a link to the article(s) being discussed will be sent out prior to each meeting.
