A sincere thank you to those programs which contributed to last quarter’s journal club competition.

Neurosurgery’s Journal Club extends the existing practice of Journal Club common to all neurosurgical training programs in which residents and fellows critically review published articles under the guidance of faculty. Journal Club submissions comprise a scholarly review written by neurosurgical residents/fellows based on top-ranked articles recently published in Neurosurgery.
