JHGSI hosts a monthly Global Surgery Journal Club. Everyone, regardless of institution, discipline, or level of training, is welcome to attend. Our international colleagues are especially invited to join.

At each journal club, we discuss three journal articles focused on one topic. We often invite one of the article’s lead authors to join so that we can learn directly from the researcher.

  • Date: The third Wednesday of every month, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. ET
  • Location: Zoom
