At Journal Club, MAHIP members meet to discuss and explore the current literature in our field. It is an excellent way to keep up with the literature, socialize with colleagues and brainstorm about new trends. For each meeting, a volunteer facilitator is responsible for choosing the article and encouraging discussion. If you are interested in facilitating a Journal Club, please contact Christine Shaw-Daigle. Journal Club announcements are posted on the MAHIP web site, detailing the group leader, the date and articles up for discussion. If you are unable to attend a journal club we still encourage a participation. Leave your comments on the announcement post and they will be brought to the discussion.

For more information on the Journal Club:

Please help to make journal club a positive educational opportunity by attending and prior to the meeting:

  • Optional: be prepared to identify at least 1 take home point that would be actionable from the paper
