JBJS fosters orthopaedic education through multiple activities and platforms, one of which is supporting journal clubs through the Robert Bucholz Resident Journal Club Support Program.
Orthopaedic residents around the world engage in journal clubs to acquire knowledge relevant to clinical practice and to learn how to critically appraise the orthopaedic literature. One recent recipient of journal club support described it as “a huge opportunity for us as a community program without a significant amount of funding from elsewhere.”
This year, for the second time, JBJS is accepting applicants for the Journal Club Support Program from orthopaedic residency programs both inside and outside the United States.
The $1,500 stipend allows residency programs to support their journal clubs in many ways:
- Investigating new and innovative alternatives to traditional journal clubs
- Bringing in authors or JBJS editors to discuss articles
- Hosting a virtual journal club with multiple authors via teleconference or social media
- Purchasing food and refreshments for journal club meetings
Applications for the 2021-2022 Robert Bucholz Resident Journal Club Support Program are now available and are due by September 30, 2021.
