Journal Clubs

Regular participation in Journal Clubs is a requirement of the BIGS Clinical and Population Science curriculum for all PhD students participating in the program. Doctoral students need to attend  minimum 12 journal clubs per year.

Here is a list of Journal Clubs on various topics offered within our BIGS Clinical and Population Science community.

Doctoral students, particularly those who do not have Journal Clubs offered in their research group/institute, are welcome to choose from this list and visit another Journal Club.
