JBJS Journal Club continues to meet monthly, under the guidance of Dr. James Heckman, JBJS Editor-in-Chief. This year,
journal club was held on Wednesday mornings before the weekly resident lectures. We continue to review 3 to 4 articles from the
previous month’s issue of JBJS. With the time change to mornings, resident participation has been excellent with well-rounded,
full discussions. Residents are assigned 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.
