A Year in Review: The 2023-24 JBJS Robert Bucholz Resident Journal Club Support Program

A total of 48 US-based journal clubs received JBJS funding support in October 2023 to enhance journal club resources and activities. Among the recipients were journal clubs at St. Luke’s University in Pennsylvania and the University of Oklahoma, who shared these updates and photos.

This being their second year winning funding from the JBJS program, “we sought to have a well-rounded journal club that had articles from every subspecialty. In this, we had contributions from every subspecialty of our department. This worked well, with discussion across all subspecialties.”





Stay tuned for more information on the JBJS Robert Bucholz Resident Journal Club Support Program for the 2024-2025 academic year. Funding can be used in a variety of ways to support journal club activities. Applications will be open in late August.
