PURLs Journal Club

Priority Updates from the Research Literature (PURLs) articles can be used in a formal journal club. The PURLs Journal Club Toolkit is an FPIN teaching tool that provides a structured method for helping faculty, even those who may not feel comfortable with biostatistics or evidence-based medicine concepts, prepare for journal club. A new journal club is released each month and includes instructions, speaker notes, journal club worksheet, published PURL, and potential PURL review form. Thus, the Toolkit provides faculty development, journal club, and the opportunity to keep up with the medical literature.

Find the monthly PURL Journal Club toolkit below!
