The journal club (JC) is an important learning tool in most residency programs, but formats are diverse, with no consistent standards (1–5). Yager et al. reported a survey obtained from 67% of general and 58% of child psychiatry program directors (5). Most had JCs (86%). Higher ratings were associated with mandatory attendance, regular faculty participation, and a focus on research methods (5). Fu et al. investigated the utility of a psychiatry JC, with 12 residents, who participated for 12 weeks, with matched controls (2). The JC was led by a psychiatrist, with one resident selecting and presenting a critical review each week (2). The authors concluded that their format may not be effective in teaching critical appraisal skills (2).
