Journal Club 2: Child Psychiatry

Well folks, we promised to satisfy your EBM appetites, so here is the second course on the buffet table of GEMS…
Our second journal club this year will be hosted by Dr. Helen Minnis (Child Psychiatrist at Yorkhill). The link below will direct you to the article Dr Minnis will analyse with us which uses twin study and questionnaires as research methodologies, which is quite different from the more common methodologies used elsewhere.
To get the most out of this session have a read of the paper before attending. We will provide snacks and refreshments during the session.This interactive session is not only useful for coursework but will help you hone your critical appraisal skills needed throughout your medical career.

Throughout the academic year, GEMS will host monthly workshops and journal club sessions about different subjects and specialty areas. 80% attendance over the course of the year will earn you a certificate of attendance for your CV. All our sessions are intended to supplement any learning you may have within the medical school undergraduate curriculum. They are free and do not require prior knowledge or GEMS membership.
The venue for the journal club has now been confirmed, it’s the CTT ADAM SMITH BUILDING: 916.
Quick note: for all those who think the university campus consists of the medical school and the Boyd Orr, and you’re sitting there thinking ‘where the hell is the Adam Smith building?’, we’re one step ahead. We’ve included a link to a pdf of the campus map.
Also, free refreshments are being provided to keep those energy levels up, and you’re eyes open!

We are looking forward to seeing you all there.
GEMS
