Virtual Journal Club for Dermatology Trainees

Our fantastic UK DCTN SpR Fellows have organised a programme of five online journal club sessions for trainees, to be held on the first Thursday of every other month.

Aims of the UK DCTN virtual journal club:

  • To encourage dermatology health care professionals to read and appraise publications critically
  • To empower them to do so by teaching critical appraisal skills
  • To highlight new findings that could change clinical care
  • To offer an opportunity to reflect on practice, discuss controversies and share insights and ideas in a relaxed and safe lifelong learning setting
  • To generate ideas for future research.
