Harvard Orthopaedic Journal Club (HOJC)

The Harvard Combined Orthopadic Residency JBJS Journal Club continues to meet monthly, under the guidance of Dr. James Heckman, JBJS Editor-in- Chief. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Heckman as our faculty advisor. Dr. Heckman provides unique insight into the selection of articles, as well as serving as a strong advocate for the club. Both residents and faculty view the journal club as a tremendous forum to discuss the current advances and controversies in Orthopaedics.

Journal club is held on Wednesday evenings. We regularly review 3 to 4 articles from the previous month’s issue of JBJS. Residents vlounteer to summarize and review each article in order to stimulate discussion. With the advent of a new PGY-4 research rotation, we also discuss a basic science article each month, chosen and reviewed by the resident currently on that rotation. Our meetings benefit from Dr. Heckman’s dedication as his guidance is an inside view on the thought processes and improvements within orthopaedic research.

The journal club was founded by a former resident, David W. Wimberley, MD in the fall of 2000. Current leadership for the club is provided by one of our senior residents, Michael Weaver, MD.
