Monthly Journal Club Meetings:

The San Diego Spine Fellowship Program curriculum includes a monthly Journal Club meeting in which assigned journal articles are reviewed and discussed for their scientific merit, relevance and application to present day patient care.  At times, a guest speaker is also included and journal articles are assigned to complement the topic presented.  Community spine surgeons are invited to attend these meetings with the goal of improving the quality of patient care.
