Virtual Journal Club

We are pleased to launch a new fortnightly Virtual Journal Club, run by trainees but open to anyone and everyone in the North Central and East London Schools of Anaesthesia. The first meeting will be on Monday 12th July at 8pm.

Our aim is to provide a platform to discuss new and interesting papers in anaesthesia across a range of grades and experiences. This isn’t geared towards exams, but is purely an opportunity to learn for the sake of learning and to try and keep up with developing knowledge in the specialty and improve critical analysis skills.We invite everyone to choose and to present recent (or not-so-recent) papers that would be of interest. Please email Imogen with your suggestions, email address below.

Meetings are limited to an hour in length and will be held via MS Teams. They will be held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month from 8-9pm.

Links to the articles will be uploaded to this website and Twitter the Friday before the meeting.

The first three meetings are:
