Each month, a current article is selected for review and discussion by residents. Sessions are coordinated by Drs. Joseph Chappelle and Elizabeth Garduno and provide residents a forum to learn about new literature, teaching them how to critically review and interpret published articles. Statistics and study schematics are frequently discussed to better inform residents about research design. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 9AM.
