Movement Disorder Fellow Journal Club


 The Movement Disorder Fellows are responsible for organizing a monthly journal club for the movement disorders faculty, staff, residents, and other invitees. Recent articles should be selected based on their impact to the field, their ability to address interesting or unanswered questions, or to review recent updates to a particular area in movement disorders. Fellows are recommended to check the AAN curriculum for specific articles. Article PDFs should be sent out to the email group list at least 3 days prior to a scheduled journal club and reminders should be sent at least 1 week prior (and preferably on the morning of). The fellow is responsible for presenting a succinct summary of the background of a particular topic, in addition to the article of interest. The format should stimulate discussion and engage the audience. While introductory slides or figures may be included in the presentation, a PowerPoint presentation is not necessary nor recommended.

Current Journal Club Schedule

Journal Club is scheduled virtually on the third Wednesday of each month from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., unless otherwise noted.
