Traditionally, journal clubs have been conducted within graduate medical programs to help integrate evidence-based learning. This study will be focused on beginning to integrate journal club into the pre-clinical years while implementing successful techniques used in past journal clubs. Our hypothesis is that, with a structured review instrument in place to help students analyze clinical articles, students will be able to benefit from monthly journal clubs and fully grasp concepts taught in these pre-clinical years. Overall, the results will contribute significantly in determining the efficacy of journal club and whether or not it can be a valuable tool in medical education.
