Journal Club: New Format!

Greetings COMSEP

We have taken over as co-editors of the Journal Club from Susan Bannister.  With two of us, there’s a small chance that we can match her energy…actually no, there’s not.

Luckily, we think that the current model works very well.  In brief, COMSEP members review 3-4 articles from the current medical education literature each month, summarize the results and discuss the implications.  Reviewers get a chance to analyze an article in depth and the COMSEP membership at large gets a brief synopsis of some of the latest evidence in teaching and learning.  Everybody wins!

Previous editions of the journal club are archived below.  Coming soon, we will be also be creating tags so that you can search for all the articles reviewed about a certain topic.

If you haven't volunteered to be a reviewer, don’t be afraid.  Writing a review is fun, easy and a relatively small time commitment.  We are currently looking for reviewers for the 2016-17 academic year.  Please contact us at or if you’d like to write a review or if you have any questions at all.

Jon Gold and Randy Rockney
